Reasonable Adjustments & Disability

Jobcentre Plus v Jamil - Reasonable Adjustments and Time Limits - a claim needs to be brought within 3 months minus one day of the refusal to make a reasonable adjustment. However, in this case, the discriminatory act in respect of a disabled employee extended over a period of time as it related to a "continuing state of affairs". Therefore, the duty to make reasonable adjustments due to the disability had to be fulfilled on a daily basis not just from the date of refusal. The adjustment related to a transfer of workplace nearer to home. If in doubt seek legal advice.
