Case Study: Employment Law – Discrimination complaint
Do you believe that your employer breached their statutory obligation under the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 and you are now looking at taking your employer to an employment tribunal in Manchester? You need to speak to Michael Lewin Solicitors who can assist you in building a case which your employer will find difficult to argue and they will strive to achieve the maximum amount of compensation for your specific claim.
If you are a disabled employee then you are protected against discrimination at work under the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 which is also referred to as the DDA. A disability can be many different types of physical or mental difficulties such as loss of mobility or blindness and this can also cover long term illness such as AIDS.
An article which was posted in the Belfast Telegraph on the 10th August 2012 states that ?A disabled woman from Northern Ireland has won a landmark case against the Department of Social Development after it was found guilty of discrimination. Margaret Mary O?Neill who suffers from rheumatoid arthritis took an industrial tribunal against the department after she believed a request for her to be allowed to transfer work closer to her home had not been addressed.?
Although Michael Lewin Solicitors can only assist in taking cases to an employment tribunal in either England or Wales the above is an example of how disability discrimination can occur.
Are you the victim of disability discrimination at your place of work and feel that your employer has breached the act which protects you against this and you are now looking at taking your employer to an employment tribunal in Manchester to claim compensation?
It is your employer’s responsibility to ensure that they make reasonable adjustments to ensure you can perform you tasks efficiently. If your employer refuses to do this and you can no longer perform you job and you are forced to leave then you may have the grounds to make a claim at an Employment Tribunal due to constructive dismissal. If you are fired because you have asked your employer to make reasonable adjustments then you may have the grounds to claim for automatic unfair dismissal.
