Dedicated Advice

If you have a disability, your employer has a duty to treat you fairly and equally. The same applies during the recruitment process.

In some cases employers are allowed to treat those with disabilities in a more advantageous way than a person who does not have a disability. It’s a fine line, so if you are unsure of whether you’ve been treated fairly, seek the advice of true disability discrimination experts.

Direct Disability Discrimination

If you believe you have been discriminated against, perhaps in not getting a job or promotion that you believe you are the best person for, or maybe because you could manage a job with a few simple adjustments that an employer was not prepared to make, you may have a case for claiming disability discrimination compensation.

Indirect Disability Discrimination

If you are not personally disabled, but have a close connection to someone who is, and need time to care for them, you are entitled to allow for that in your work schedule. Your employer has a duty to be flexible in these circumstances and should not penalise you for taking necessary time off to care for someone with a disability. Otherwise you may have a case for indirect disability discrimination.
