Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and I will be assisting you with your question today.
Are these related to a specific medical condition?
It can be potential disability discrimination, especially if the employer knows that there is an underlying condition which could make things worse for you in the event you are exposed to any additional stress, etc. Sometimes you have to spell it out clearly to them to make them understand, but even if you had not done so, that does not mean they can get away with it. Even minor knowledge would mean thy have enough there to at least look into the situation in more detail and ensure you have the required support and that they do not engage in any acts or behaviours which could place you at a disadvantage because of your condition.
Does this answer your query?
The issue with pursuing disability discrimination is that any claim (or the ACAS process) must be initiated within 3 months of the alleged discriminatory act so whatever they tell you and however they may try and delay things, you must ensure that you start the process within the specified time limit
They do not need specific knowledge and for you to point them to the disability and identify it for them. COnstructive knowledge of a disability is sufficient and they then have strict obligations to ensure no discrimination occurs and that reasonable adjustments are made.
Hello, thanks for getting in touch. We do ask that customers post any related follow up queries within 7 days of submitting their original question if they want it to be covered by the initial fee. After that time, if you need further support, we kindly request that a new question is posted as we cannot offer indefinite assistance under one fee.
