Employers should consider granting a request to be reinstated from a disabled employee who resigns while depressed but then regrets this decision. The EAT has ruled that this could be a reasonable adjustment in some cases.

Presumably the delay between resignation and request, and whether the employer has appointed a replacement, will be relevant factors in deciding whether reinstatement is reasonable. (Hinsley v Chief Constable of West Mercia Constabulary, EAT)
