The article provides an update on the ruling issued by the Employment Appeals Tribunal (EAT) in Great Britain to several employment-related cases. In the Royal Liverpool Children's Hospital NHS Trust v. Dunsby case, the EAT ruled that absence totting-up systems did not have to disregard absence caused by disability, although the employer did have to produce a material and substantial reason to justify a dismissal. The ruling issued on the Burgess v. Plymouth City Council case is also provided.
