This essential guide, produced by the employment law team at Gowling WLG (UK) LLP, explains your employment rights if you have genetic haemochromatosis, including :

  • Is genetic haemochromatosis a disability?
  • How do I prove my GH is a disability to my employer?
  • What is a "reasonable adjustment"?
  • What kinds of things might be reasonable adjustments for my GH?
  • I feel that I've been discriminated against because of my condition. What can I do?
  • What is the process for making a claim to the employment tribunal?

The guide focusses on employment law in England & Wales, but many of the principles also apply in Scotland & Northern Ireland (where the law differs locally).
