The Labour Court was faced with the question of whether the respondent in this case was justified in imposing a blanket ban on the employment of diabetics in the position of firefighters on the basis that the condition in itself posed a serious risk for the sufferer, as well as the public at large, where the individual was called upon to work in hazardous and stressful conditions.
