If you believe you’ve suffered from discrimination at work based on your disability, talk to Tees.
Maybe you feel that you’ve not been offered opportunities to advance your career because of your disability. It could be that you’re struggling with some aspects of your job and you just want a level playing field with your colleagues who don’t have disabilities or you have requested reasonable adjustments and your employer won't agree them. You may feel you have been dismissed because of a disability. Whatever your situation, we are here to help. We provide clear, practical legal advice so you can make an informed decision about your rights and options, including making a discrimination claim to the Employment Tribunal if need be.
Under the Equality Act 2010, workers are protected against discrimination on the grounds of their disabilities.
