Employers and the Equality act

Employers should not refuse a person with epilepsy a job because of their condition without having a very good reason. But jobs in the Armed Forces are not covered by the Equality Act 2010. This means you can be refused a job in the Armed Forces if you are diagnosed with epilepsy. There is more information about work and your rights on the Epilepsy Action website.
The Ipswich Epilepsy Support Group have free leaflets about people working with epilepsy if you would like one please phone our helpline on 01473461407.
