Equal opportunities for people with disabilities

Working with AVN

From 1 October 2010, the Act Equality Act 2010 replaced major parts of the old Disability Discrimination Act across the UK (except in Northern Ireland)

This act makes it easy for a person to show that they are disabled and protected from any disability discrimination.

You no longer have to demonstrate that your condition affects a particular function, such as mobility, to qualify for protection from discrimination.

The new law also protects you from any ‘indirect discrimination’ – where a policy or practice is applied in the same way to everyone but puts disabled people at a particular disadvantage. In addition, you cannot be discriminated against because of something that results from your disability.

When applying for jobs, prospective employers are limited in the questions they can ask you about your health before they offer you a job.

Working with AVN
Anyone with avascular necrosis AVN will find working life to be difficult. Most will want to carry on working as long as they can, there are many reasons to do so, including a purpose to each day and the increased financial security. However, help is available for those who feel unable to carry on working, see the benefits available page.
