Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
I assume this person is not currently a member? Can anyone join the group generally?
Ok - they cant demand immediate membership. Its not blackmail as such because that is demanding money and threatening harm. But clearly they are not a desirable person and this may be a reason to reject membership.
There is no time limit for reasonable adjustments, but the law says you have to be reasonable.
So you can't take years, for example.
But if they are saying let me in now, or I will go to the press - this could be grounds for refusing. But make it clear its on the basis of their ACTIONS and NOT their disability.Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Yes you can do that. But make sure as I said, its because of their action, not the disability.
They can not dictate how you run the club.
Does that clarify?
Yes indeed. It is correct. But you cant discriminate on the grounds of disability.
That is why you can refuse them because of their actions (going to press), rather than disability
All the best. If I could ask you to rate my answer before you go today, by clicking on the 5 stars or happy face at the bottom of the screen, otherwise the site does not pay me for the time spent with you today. It is also an important part of the online process. Thank you in advance and good luck!
