Our expert says:
I think that proper protection for people with chronic psych disorders like Bipolar is implied by the constitution and other laws, but its far from sufficiently established in case law.
Even without a specific disorder, there are isues about changing someone's work conditions unfavourably, and there's the offense of Constructive Dismissal where a company deliberately makes your working conditions unbearable to force you to choose to resign, rather than sacking you or making you redundant.
But you really need the advice of a labour lawyer. It will indeed help if your psychiatrist agrees that these working conditions are aggravating your health problems, but its useful to have a good lawyer who knows the rules and how to get them properly applied
