It is against the law for an employer or potential employer to discriminate against staff members with a disability and this area is governed by the Equality Act 2010. An employer needs to ensure that their place of work is suitably adjusted to meet the needs of an employee with a disability to a reasonable standard. For example this could be providing an employee with a special piece of equipment to help them in their job role.
The reason the Equality Act 2010 states that ?reasonable? steps are taken is that if a person was applying for a job which they could not perform as a result of their disability then this will not class as discrimination. For example if an employer is looking for a driver of a heavy goods vehicle and an applicant was applying for the role with a physical impairment which meant they could not drive then this would not class as discrimination if an employer did not offer a job interview.
