Re-instatement can be a 'reasonable adjustment'

Although the recent case of Hinsley v Chief Constable of West Mercia was concerned to a great extent with specific regulations relating to police recruitment, it is worth noting that the EAT also confirmed that re-instatement could be a 'reasonable adjustment' that an employer could be ordered to implement where, as in this case, an employee had resigned before realising that they were suffering from depression and then sought to get their job back, having later taken medical advice and finding out they had a disability.
