Not sure where to put this one.
I’m interested in the Equality Act and to what extent people here use their protected status to ensure their continued employment. Do your employers respect the act? Have you had to remind your employers of their duties under the act? Did your employer consider your adjustments unreasonable?
Reading this forum tells me that some still at work feel that they are in a precarious position, when I thought the aim of the act was to keep people in work, prevent discrimination and protect the rights of vulnerable people. Small firms might not consider adjustments ’reasonable’ or may not have an occupational health department, so many of us MS sufferers might be missing the support we need.
Really interested to hear your experiences. I work full time for a large organisation, so I’m in a very fortunate position but I’m aware that this might not be the case for everyone.
