He had the same contract as the rest of us and there was nothing specific in that contract about such matters. Though solicitors are very expensive. There is of course the potential for a tribunal. I do not believe the then employer would have done it out of sheer kind hearted ness. I have a Compromise Agreement with that company so cannot name them but they are a huge American corporation who’s CEO was not so long ago Republican Vice President of the USA - these companies are not known for giving money away when they don’t need to. Coincidentally a different work colleague of mine in a different company has Type 1 diabetes. The employer bends over backwards to accommodate her and she has had a lot of concessions made by him in that regard. There are often other factors that come into play.
