Disability Discrimination Law

Disabled workers share the same general employment rights as other workers, but there are special provisions for them under the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) – including the right to reasonable adjustments in the workplace.

Under the DDA, it is unlawful for employers to discriminate against disabled people for a reason related to their disability, in all aspects of employment, unless this can be justified. This covers application forms, interviews, job offers, terms of employment, promotion, training, work-related benefits such as access to recreation or refreshment facilities and dismissal or redundancy

Your employer must make ‘reasonable adjustments’ to ensure you’re not put at a substantial disadvantage by employment arrangements or any physical feature of the workplace.

Your employer cannot select you for redundancy because you are disabled or for any reason relating to your disability. If your employer is consulting about future redundancies, they should take reasonable steps to include you in any consultation.

Your employer must also make reasonable adjustments to any selection criteria for selecting employees for redundancies, to make sure the criteria don’t discriminate against disabled workers. Click here to read more about redundancy
