The only way I can get in to my workplace, the door, would no longer be left open for me
Spoke to the team responsible and said I cannot access the building by any other route. I stated I'm an intermittent wheelchair user, gave my reasons as to why I couldn't physically walk the other way.
Awful. I receive full PIP, but still manage to work a 40 hour week. But because colleagues don't see my health issues it's as if they don't exist. I was forced to attempt the route just so they could say they'd shown me the route. This left me physically shaking and upset.
As a reasonable adjustment special access locks will be put on the door for me to access my workplace. I was repeatedly informed that it would put them over budget so I was made to feel guilty for wanting equal access. 6 weeks on it still hasn't been done.
If you've been discriminated against, read how you can positively assert your rights in our Take Action section
I work for the NHS and it took 9 months to get alterations to door for access It was only carried out as I got my union and they asked solicitors for their advice on making a Discrimination claim
As an update, 4 months on it still hasn't been done.
