If you are physically or mentally disabled, you have the right to not be discriminated against in the workplace because of your disability.
The Equality Act 2010 makes disability discrimination in the workplace unlawful. This includes a perceived disability, the disability of someone you associate with, or a disability you used to have.
Your employer also has a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure you are not put at a disadvantage in the workplace because of a disability.
Once your claim is in progress, our solicitors will try to negotiate the best possible settlement and outcome for you. It is rare for cases to go to a full hearing because our legal experts are experienced in resolving such matters as early as possible.
