    Hey @r25j, welcome to the online community :)

    My partner very recently was dismissed and in part due to her disability. We eventually reached a settlement and avoided a tribunal because we needed it resolved quickly, but ACAS was very helpful in providing us with advice and options on legal support. They are not legal support themselves, but they are an independent public body for workplace issues and disputes. Here's a link to their advice section, they also have a helpline you can call.

    Sorry if you've already tried them, I can try to look for something more direct to your question!
    They/Them, however they are no wrong pronouns with me so whatever you feel most comfortable with

    Hi acas were not useful, if you are in a union they can represent or you can represent yourself which I did lots of free legal advice out there, valla is cheap basically it is as simple as managing a project, any questions ask me I have been through it all, know all about disability discrimination had advice from university which was written who also do presentations
