It is against the law for an employer to discriminate against a disabled person at work.
This includes direct discrimination where a disabled person is treated less favourably than colleagues or others, as well as indirect discrimination in which a company policy or practice puts disabled people at an unfair disadvantage compared with people who aren't disabled.
The law on disability discrimination at work also places the employer under a duty to make reasonable adjustments to/in the workplace to enable a disabled person to continue in their job. Failure to do this constitutes unlawful discrimination.
