Following a third grievance for failure to provide a reasonable adjustment (necessary information given late, inaccurately, or not at all) my work have said they're just not going to bother anymore.
They've admitted their complete failure to provide a very basic adjustment, of zero cost, and basically said: "What are you going to do about it?"
It's not that they can't provide the reasonable adjustment, it's just not something they want to do. It would set a precedent of actually giving support.
That's alongside a couple of upheld grievances regarding management using discriminatory language about me, plus another upheld grievance for a different failure of reasonable adjustment.
Insulting settlement rejected. ACAS involved. Tribunal likely.
Dealing with this via the law courts is the only way to tackle disability discrimination, as disabled people are treated like rubbish all the time and this has to be stopped - most abusive employers are…

All I can say is fight the good fight dude
Keep at it, you cannot let them get away with the sort of behaviour.
make sure you get as much evidence as possible.
I wish you luck
yeah i have a similar situation.i actually had a sick note for 4 weeks with stress and it said i can come back immediately if they provide reasonable adjustment of putting me on 7am shift... totally refused and out right told me they will never let me have that because they know i want it and they dont want to allow me things i want. but anyone else with sick note gets put on 7am. im treated differently, im refused reasonable adjustments. they simply hate me. and no theres nothing we can about this aside from just leave and then sue them for constructive dissmisal thats the only thing, it would count as constructive dismissal.
A lot of this is now due to me having had many grievances upheld...the management just don't want to do their legal duty.
It's a tricky one. I'm currently going through the process of getting reasonable adjustments in place.
I guess you may need to prove that they are being unreasonable which could be difficult.
Please continue this legal action if at all possible, gathering as much evidence as possible - this is not an option for this employer, it is a legal obligation and they are clearly breaking the law, for which they must be held legally accountable and prosecuted in a court of law
i had grievances but in my place the house always wins so it just burnt me back instead
Feeling massive anxiety and huge depression today.
Dreams of drowning last night. Seems to sum up my situation.
are you speaking to a solicitor / barister?
