Hello and welcome to Just Answer, you are protected by the Equality Act 2010. A disabled employee must not be subjected to a detriment, harassment and bullying on the grounds of disability amounts to a detriment. Your employer must also make reasonable adjustments which would include purchasing equipment to assist you in your job. A failure to do so amounts to discrimination.You can now raise a grievance on both of these matters using your council's grievance procedure. Hopefully this will lead to a positive outcome, if it does not you can claim disability discrimination using the form you will find at www.employmenttribunals.gov.ukGood luck.
