Disability Discrimination

Disability law is complex. There are six types of disability discrimination. Depending on the type of discrimination, knowledge of the disability may be relevant (or not) and an employer may (or may not) be able to defend a claim if it can justify it’s treatment of a disabled employee.

A snap-shot of cases heard by the employment appeal tribunal will usually show disability cases heavily featured. Every disability case will be come down to the individual circumstances, including the type of disability, its impact on the employee’s work, the size and nature of the employers business and available resources.

The aim of this hub is to provide accessible employment law disability discrimination articles, comment and updates.
