Know your rights – employment

Organisation: SAMH

Web page

This short web page provides a synopsis of the rights which protect you if you are concerned about disclosing a mental health problem to your employer. It gives a comprehensive overview of the Equality Act 2010, which says that a mental health problem is a disability if it has a substantial and long term impact on your ability to carry out day-to-day activities. It also provide employers, line managers, support staff and advocates with a short, handy guide on the rights of an employee in the workplace.

At the end of this web page there is a link to download ‘What’s it Worth Now?’, SAMH’s review of the social and economic costs of mental health problems in Scotland, including the costs of unemployment.
