Disability Discrimination Act 1995: letter to Martin Cawley CEO of Turning Point Scotland

Letter just sent today, 17 July 2015, to Martin Cawley, Chief Executive of Turning Point Scotland:

Strapline: Disability Discrimination Act 1995

"Dear Mr Cawley

I am writing to you as CEO of Turning Point Scotland to remind you of the Disability Discrimination Act 1995.

In particular I would like to draw your attention to Section 4: Discrimination against applicants and employees

http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/1995/50/section/4/enacted

"(1)It is unlawful for an employer to discriminate against a disabled person—

(a)in the arrangements which he makes for the purpose of determining to whom he should offer employment;

(b)in the terms on which he offers that person employment; or

(c)by refusing to offer, or deliberately not offering, him employment."

I hope that you are ensuring that ALL Turning Point Scotland employees, particularly those within your Human Resources department, understand that it is against the law for employers to discriminate against people who have disabilities.  Both in your application and selection processes, and in the way that you treat people who have disabilities.  

Yours sincerely,

Chrys Muirhead (Mrs)"
