One of the key questions the tribunal has to determine in considering reasonable adjustments is whether the adjustment would remove the substantial disadvantage the employee faces. Once the tribunal have considered whether the disadvantage would be removed they must then, and only then, decide whether the adjustment was a reasonable adjustment to make. The tribunal in this case had been wrong to find an adjustment should have been made on the basis that it would have given the employee the opportunity to prove himself. The tribunal should have decided whether there was a real prospect of the employee being able to return to work (and thus the substantial disadvantage being removed). Romec Limited v Rudham
