Disabled Staff Working For Tesco

EDM number 1310 in 2012-13, proposed by Robert Halfon on 24/04/2013.
Categorised under the topics of Companies, Disability discrimination, Employment, Industrial relations and Service industries.

That this House is concerned by reports from disabled Tesco workers in Harlow, that they may be forced into redundancy because their existing adjustments will not be transferred to the new site at Dagenham; notes reports that one warehouseman, who has been registered disabled and received an adjustment for many years, will be expected to hit new performance targets within an eight week trial period at the new site; further notes the anxieties of disabled workers that this may make moving to the new site effectively impossible for them, pushing them into unemployment; and therefore urges Tesco's management to allow Harlow workers to transfer to the new site with their existing pay and their existing terms and conditions including disability adjustments.

This motion has been signed by a total of 1 MPs.
