David acts for an ever-increasing number of employee and senior executives (often with late) diagnoses of ADHD and/or Autism.
These conditions can often cause difficulties for employees in the workplace especially where their employers are unsympathetic or do not understand such conditions.
There is often a period of disruption until the correct medication levels are established. Clients struggle during periods of medication supply shortage.
Some employers, on learning that their employee has a diagnosis of autism and/or ADHD can form the incorrect view that the employee is somehow ‘damaged goods’ and incapable of doing their job.
Employers often fail to consider reasonable adjustments to help their employee or treat them badly because of their disability.
David has 30 years’ experience in advising employee and senior executive clients with autism, ADHD and other disabilities on their employment law rights.
Being a proud parent of a neuro-diverse child helps David me to understand at least some of the challenges faced by these clients.
In addition, David also advises employee/senior executive parents with caring responsibilities for neuro-diverse children experiencing discrimination by association in their employment due to those caring responsibilities.
Often employers wrongly perceive that such parents do not have the capacity to care for their disabled child and also be able to deliver in their employment roles.
If you have autism and/or ADHD and are having issues at work please contact David for an initial discussion about how he can help.
If you are the parent of a child with autism and/or ADHD and you are experiencing issues with your employer due its perception that you are somehow unable to fully deliver at work due to your caring responsibilities please contact David for support.
