How to know if you are being discriminated against at work because of a disability
If you have a disability, or even a temporary injury, and either lose your job or find that you are being passed over for promotions and so on, you may be able to fight this or even make Arun claims against your employer.
It is against the law for any employer to discriminate against an employee because of a disability, and you should point this out to any employer that you feel is not taking this seriously.
You may be able to take your employer to court, and may also be able to claim compensation from them as the result of their behaviour, so look into the following things:
- An employer is not allowed to favour another employee over you because of your disability. This may include giving them better jobs, offering them promotion over you and so on.
- An employer is not allowed to indirectly discriminate against you, by setting tasks or coming up with events that you cannot participate in because of your disability, whilst other employees are able to take part.
- An employer cannot try to force you out of a job because of a disability. Many employers are aware that they cannot fire employees because of a disability, so will make life difficult for them in order to force them to quit.
- An employer needs to make reasonable adjustments to your workload to help you to continue with a disability. Any employer who is unwilling to make any changes to your role when you have suffered a disability will be consider to be discriminating.
- An employer is not allowed to harass you about your disability. This may include making jokes or spreading gossip about you because of your disability. This goes for colleagues as well.
- An employer may not victimise or bully you because you have made a compensation claim against them for discrimination.
