Our focus is disability discrimination and workplace health issues. Our specialism in this area allows us to provide the very best tailored, expert advice and service to our clients.
We have specialist knowledge of the law around illness and disability discrimination. We are experts in mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety, bipolar and post-traumatic stress disorder, and understand the challenges that these conditions can present in the work context. We are experts in other health-related issues such as work-related stress and workplace bullying and harassment.
As recognised experts in this field, we treat these tricky issues with sensitivity and empathy and provide straightforward, practical solutions for employees and employers. Our experience in this area is what gives us our edge and we are adept at finding solutions, even to seemingly intractable situations.
Our aim at didlaw is to enable people with illness or disability to work in an environment which respects their dignity, but which also acknowledges that employers do not always get it right and need help and support to manage the challenges. There is a balance to strike between the often conflicting interests of the individual and the organisation, and we work on both sides of the fence to help achieve this. Our work with both employer and employee clients gives us invaluable insight in to how to resolve issues. We have a unique understanding of managing people with illnesses and disabilities who are facing difficult times at work.
For employers we appreciate that it takes time and effort to implement the right working practices and policies to support employees living with illness or disability. We help reduce this burden. We understand the commercial imperatives and drivers which businesses have to manage as well as managing employee relations and seek to resolve issues before they reach formal litigation. We also provide specialist training.
We try to achieve a balance between the needs of both parties without prolonging matters for longer than is necessary. Whatever the issue with illness, disability and work, we have unparalleled experience in resolving problems so that the parties can get on with their careers, manage their health and run their businesses in harmony. It can be done.
We provide a service which offers support, empathy and understanding. Our specialism in the area of illness and disability enables us to deliver more than just purely legal advice. Our client stories and testimonials confirm our approach and commitment to our clients. We are not just another law firm.
