Just thinking about rights

You hear on the news about human rights etc.. This that & the other as we are in the EU, so if someone has to go for a esa assessment or pip assessment and the building is not accessible when you turn up or you can' t physically get there survey to God as you are part of theEU also, surely it is a infringement o your human rights or discriminating against your disabled rights??

  • Good question! I can imagine that one day somebody will put this to the test and take the powers that be to court over this matter? Below I have pasted an excerpt from the 'Equality and Human Rights Commission' website:

    *Failure to make reasonable adjustments

    Under the Act employers and organisations have a responsibility to make sure that disabled people can access jobs, education and services as easily as non-disabled people. This is known as the ‘duty to make reasonable adjustments’.

    Disabled people can experience discrimination if the employer or organisation doesn’t make a reasonable adjustment. This is known as a ‘failure to make reasonable adjustments’.

    For example, an employee with a mobility impairment needs a parking space close to the office. However, her employer only gives parking spaces to senior managers and refuses to give her a designated parking space.

    What is reasonable depends on a number of factors, including how big the organisation making the adjustment is. If an organisation already has a number of parking spaces it would be reasonable for them to designate one close to the entrance for the employee.

    We have recently seen court cases whereby claimants have won on issues ranging from delayed PIP payments through to the bedroom tax.

    All my hopes and dreams for you
