Disability discrimination

The Equality Act 2010 affords statutory protection to individuals who have a disability (physical or mental) to ensure that they are not subjected to direct discrimination, harassment or simply treated unfavourably in the workplace.

Employment

Where disability discrimination occurs in the work place a claim for compensation can be brought in an employment tribunal. The tribunal has a number of powers and, if a finding of discrimination is made, it can make a declaration of rights; recommend an employer to take certain steps (e.g. introduce changes) and to pay compensation. Our specialist Employment team offer real expertise in this area.

Public bodies

All public bodies (e.g. hospitals, health services, local authorities, education departments, prisons etc.) have legal duties relating to disability and are required to have regard to the need to promote equality of opportunity between disabled people and others; eliminate unlawful discrimination and harassment and promote positive attitudes to disabled people. Public bodies must also take account of disabled persons' needs even if that means they are treated more favourable than non disabled. Individuals who have been discriminated against can challenge the actions, failings or policies of public bodies and seek financial compensation.
