Someone can’t be treated ‘adversely’ at work because they have a disability.
Adverse treatments include:
- being fired from a job
- being rejected for a job during the hiring process
- being offered different (and unfair) terms and conditions of employment to other employees
- being isolated or excluded by colleagues or managers
- being paid differently to people who work in the same role and have the same experience
- being given more unappealing or difficult duties than other people in the same role
- not being provided with adequate equipment or facilities
- having limited or no opportunities for promotions, transfers, or training.
