    Compensation for Disability Discrimination at Work


    How to find out if you are entitled to compensation for disability discrimination at work

    Imagine you have worked in an office ever since you left school and have always been on time, done the job to the best of your ability and hardly ever been off sick. Suddenly, one day you suffer a stroke and have to have quite a bit of time of work. You have been such a loyal, hardworking employee, you are sure that when you get back to work everything will be exactly the same.

    You are ready to get back to work — you’re virtually as good as new, apart from the fact that you have a bit of a slur in your speech due to the stroke. Every time you go to speak to your boss, you find that they can’t look you in the eye; when talking to you, they always look away. Although you have been doing your job as you always did, your boss fires you because you are not working properly. You know that is not true. You might need to find out if you are entitled to compensation for disability discrimination at work.

    No win no fee*

    To find out more, you should ring Accident Advice Helpline. A trained adviser will guide you through a 30-second test which will establish whether you are likely to get compensation for disability discrimination at work. After that, an online calculator will work out approximately how much compensation for disability discrimination an accident solicitor might obtain for you if they take your case on and win. This would be on a no win no fee* basis. All solicitors at Accident Advice Helpline operate in this manner.

    When people discriminate against us, it makes us feel worthless and hurt. We wonder what is wrong with us. This has a bad effect on our self-esteem and can cause depression. This leads to a feeling of isolation. Winning compensation for disability discrimination at work will not make everything right, but it will give you a feeling that what has happened to you is wrong and not your fault. It will hopefully help you to gain back some self-esteem.

    Most claims can be processed by telephone

    Do not worry that by making that initial call you are putting yourself under obligation, because you are not. You decide if you wish to start the claim. Also, most claims can be processed by telephone and most claimants need not attend court.
