Disability Discrimination

Disability Discrimination

The Equality Act 2010 provides protection from forms of direct and indirect discrimination and in particular in relation to an applicant's disability.

A person with a disability is defined under the act if "you have a physical or mental impairment that has a 'substantial' and 'long-term' negative effect on your ability to do normal daily activities". In addition to the act "Equality Act Guidance Notes" have been implemented to provide more information.

Disability discrimination may apply where an employer has failed to make reasonable adjustments including (but not limited to) the following circumstances:

  • Recruitment and selection
  • Pay
  • Training and Development
  • Discipline and grievances
  • Bullying and harassment
  • Working hours

Discrimination claims can be very complex whether you are bringing or defending a claim. Our lawyers can give you advice as to the value of the claim and direction as to how to proceed further.

As well as advice on existing claims our lawyers are able to advise you on implementing procedures and common practices that may reduce an employer's vulnerability to claims being brought against them.
