Employment Disability Discrimination Assessments

We assess rehabilitation after illness and are expert in all aspects of discrimination law. We make recommendations on reasonable adjustments.
Disability Discrimination Examples of Our Work
Some of the examples of our work on the types of disability discrimination at work that we advise on include on cases where an employee has been dismissed because of absences related to disability at work. We recently dealt with a case where an employee was dismissed and told that she would not fit in because of her disability. This as a case of discrimination because of a disability.
In the housing arena, we have also advised on cases where individuals have been subject to eviction because of their disability. These disabilities have included common conditions such as depression, hoarding behaviour and schizophrenia.
Other examples of our work on disability discrimination include advising on cases where there is a concern that the employer has failed to make a reasonable adjustment during redundancy selection process to consider the individual’s disability.
Disability Discrimination at Work
Carrying out assessments of disability discrimination at work is remains a core part of our work. The Equality Act 2010 makes it unlawful to discriminate against an employee or worker on the grounds of a mental health condition, learning disability or neurodevelopmental disorder.
A dismissal at work will not be illegal unless an employer knew or could reasonably be expected to know that the employee has a disability. This means it is essential to communicate the disability to the employer. In cases where disability is reported we are often asked to assess disability discrimination cases and determine whether the condition meets the criteria for a disability under the Equality Act.
Types of Disability Discrimination
The Equality Act 2010 also makes it illegal to treat an individual less favourably because of a disability. Finally, the Equality Act makes it illegal to victimise or harass someone because of the disability.
