Dyslexia advice for employees

Your employer is duty bound, under the Equality Act to make adjustments to a workplace, if you declare that you have a learning difficulty. Do not hide your dyslexia, as if you disclose it, an employer must accommodate your needs.

If you do feel discriminated against in the workplace, you can start an employment tribunal. We recommend you contact the citizen advice bureau for help in lodging a complaint.

Know your strengths

Many dyslexic people have above average talents in a number of important areas. Understanding what you are good at allows you to present your best assets in the workplace. Dyslexia focused strengths are often visual and an intuitive understanding of how things work.
