Disability Discrimination Claim Solicitors
Under the Equality Act 2010, it is unlawful for an employer to discriminate against an employee due to a disability. The legal framework also imposes a duty on an employer to make reasonable adjustments for disabled employees or job applicants who are placed at a substantial disadvantage because of their disability.
As with race and pregnancy, disability is one of a number of protected characteristics afforded protection by the Equality Act 2010.
Your employer owes you a duty of care and must ensure that other employees do not discriminate against or harass you. If they fail to do so, you may be able to bring a claim against your employer for failing to ensure your legal rights are protected.
If you believe that you have been subject to disability discrimination within the workplace and would like to discuss the matter further, do not hesitate to contact our team of specialist employment solicitors on 0113 284 5023.
