Disability Discrimination Denied: How Aurora Assist Helped Miguel Fight Back Against Unaccommodating Employer

Our client, Miguel, had been working as a data analyst for a company in London for several years when he was diagnosed with a physical disability that affected his mobility. Miguel was still able to perform his job, but needed some reasonable adjustments to be made in the workplace to enable him to work comfortably and safely. 

Miguel approached his employer and requested a few accommodations, such as a designated parking space closer to the office entrance, a more accessible workspace, and a flexible schedule to attend regular medical appointments. Unfortunately, his employer refused to make any adjustments, claiming that they were not required by law to accommodate his disability. 

Miguel felt frustrated and helpless, but he didn't give up. He reached out to Aurora Assist, and we provided him with support and guidance. Our team helped Miguel file a claim under the Equality Act 2010, which prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities in the workplace. 

After several months of discussions and legal actions, Miguel's employer was determined to have discriminated against him and was ordered to make the necessary reasonable accommodations. In addition, Miguel received payment for his legal expenses and the discrimination he had experienced. Miguel was able to exercise his rights as an employee and achieve success because of the assistance of Aurora Assist. He is finally now supported by his company continues in his employment there while feeling appreciated by them despite how serious it got with his dispute with his employer in the past.
