GP Partner discriminated against

04 February 2010

We advised a partner at a GP practice in a mental health discrimination claim after he resigned following the surgery’s failure to make reasonable adjustments for his disability. The Disability Discrimination Act 1995 (“DDA”) prohibits discrimination related to mental health conditions as well as protecting individuals with physical disabilities. The DDA covers a wide range of mental health conditions, including long-term depression and/or anxiety conditions. Disability discrimination is outlawed at work (including job applications) and in relation to the way goods and services are provided to consumers.
We have wide experience of the complex and sensitive issues involved in these types of cases. Our specialist solicitors have successfully fought cases for individuals with mental health conditions.
