Interview discrimination

Has anyone experienced discrimination during job interviews? I have had many ‘thanks but no thanks’ even though I am massively experienced at what I do. The minute recruiters clock the walking cane and the limp that goes with it you can see them making negative notes. They should realise I CAN read upside down. Sad that my career has come to an abrupt halt. I get i’m over qualified just because I want to reduce my working hours. Actually, I don’t want to, I HAVE to. Grrrrr

Highhorn,

Please read the Law from the Equal Rights Commission; Home Page | Equality and Human Rights Commission

Give them a ring with a specific question.

If you contact the Disability Law Service; the Society pays a retainer for exactly this type of problem; contact them Multiple Sclerosis Legal Advice Line | Disability Law Service
