Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today. When did they refuse to make the adjustments?
They informed me two days ago in a Return to Work meeting that I would be given 6 more weeks of light duties to assist my recovery from my work related stress and depression and then they would have no more work for me if I was unable to then return to full duties. My job is as a prison officer.
If an employer fails to make reasonable adjustments then there are a couple of options open to you:
The failure of my employer has left me feeling totally unsupported in my workplace, bullied and discriminated against.
The actions of my employer has left me feeling totally unsupported and discriminated against with no option but to resign and leave the job, do I have a case for constructive dismissal as a result of their discriminatory actions.
that is also an option but it is risky as you are placing yourself out of a job and a pursuing a claim that can be difficult to win, so the risks can be high
what are the penalties on the employer if they are found to have committed a discriminatory act which has caused my health to suffer further
If a claim for discrimination is made, the usual remedy would be to award compensation for injury to feelings. This is calculated by considering the level of discrimination that the claimant has been subjected to. The seriousness of the discriminatory behaviour is assigned to one of three ‘bands’ known as Vento bands, named after a court case with that name. The current compensation levels are as follows:
If I prove that my disability in this case work related stress was caused by the actions of my employer what recourse would I have and what compensation could I claim.
apart from the above it could be personal injury as well but the damages will have to be assessed by a specialist personal injury solicitor
