<h1></h1>How does one deal with discrimination from colleagues who cannot help looking down on you - because in a selfish world where everyone thinks I matter more than you - and moreso because I am white and native British and you are not???????????and you are old and disabled????? I have a permanent injury which became exacerbated working in hostile conditions.I have now reached a point of no return with this injury and moreover left with either going without food etc or face returning to work in a hostile/selfish workplace, because there are no jobs for 55+ I was moved from a room recommended by O.H. to a unsuitable and unacceptable room because of perhaps a combination of low respect for me as a person (I'll never know why?), poor understanding of workplace adjustment and I suppose undue pressure from demanding others (having been in there longer) in the establishment. My injury became so exacerbated it brought me to my knees and stopped me from being able to go to work until it were subsituted by suitable alternative i.e. a wheelchair to take my weight. I have now been off work for 14 months for this recommended workplace adjustment - any liaison with bodies who could help establish 'duty of care' = expected of a public service institution such as a school, have been dismissed as perhaps irrelevant or not required, Perturbed from being ignored/neglected/dismissed and sensing a dismissal looming I filed a complaint with the tribunal - which was accepted, The workplace having received a copy has had a rude awakening and kind of woken up to find they cannot get out of this as easily. I am supposed to meet up to formally discuss the way forward but I am finding it difficult to face the person who has not only ignored my being but undermined my good work and has allowed others to think little of me. If I do I am doomed and If I don't I am doomed! What do I do?
