Applying for a job
You may be able to apply for an Access to Work grant if you need communication support at your job interview (for example, a British Sign Language interpreter or a lipspeaker).
Questions about your health or disability
An employer is not normally allowed to ask you questions about your health or disability before they offer you a job.
They can only ask you about this for very limited reasons, for example to:
- make ‘reasonable adjustments’ - for example if you need a large print version of a test
- decide if you can do something that is an essential part of the job
If you’re treated unfairly when you apply for a job
Contact the Equality Advisory Support Service if you think you’ve been treated unfairly.
You may also be able to take a complaint to an employment tribunal - you have to do this within 3 months of the discrimination happening.
