where to go, how to find an advocate for a grievance meeting
Hi, I am attempting to help my brother Martin who was born with mild cerebral palsy and who has been off work with various health problems since January. The health problems are as a result of his job - heavy lifting, and his employer won't make reasonable adjustments to allow him to return to work in another capacity. Martin does not want to leave as he will be unable to receive any benefits if he does. He has worked for the company for 23 years. A solicitor has written to the employer on his behalf but the outcome has not been good. He has suggested we take this further but I know Martin would not be able to cope on his own at any future meeting with his employer without support, someone to speak up for him. I can attend I think, as his carer. Where would we be likely to find help? I imagine it is really difficult in these Covid-19 times.
