Just wanted to ask: my partner got a casual position for a call centre. He signed his employment contract electronically and was meant to start today. He has been working in call centres for 8 years and today the HR manager met the new staff and they were suppose to commence training. He has mild cerebral palsy in his one arm, they manager looked at his arm and took him into a meeting room. Her first words as they sat down was, 'I see you have a disability what is it?" He replied it was cerebral palsy (mild). She then stated there is a lot of data entry and note taking and it was not noted you have a disability (which is mild). The interviewers were fine and did not say anything. She stated she was unsure if he would have trouble with the role as it was outbound calls and a lot of note taking. She then informed my partner she would step out of the room to talk to his manager and if he minded and if he could wait. He stated yes. After 5 minutes she returned to the room and said I was talking to your manager and we were unprepared about your disability and want to speak to the general manager and that they will get back to him tomorrow about the decision. She stated she was a bit worried as from the company's point of view as the role may not be suitable for him. He replied that he has worked in call centres for 8 years but if you want to talk to the general manager that is fine. She then stated she will get back to him tomorrow of the outcome. Is this discrimination? How can we take it further? Should I see a lawyer?
