UK Employment Law Questions Answered by Verified Experts
1. Yes, the employer's response and refusal to re-employ your sister in law breaches the provisions of sections 6 & 60 of the Equality Act 2010, as it amounts to discrimination on the basis of your sister in law's disability, her mental illness, so that he doesn't offer her a job, or her old job back in the old people's home. So your sister in law can sue the former employer for discriminating against her. So I would advise her to see a solicitor and take legal proceedings.
