14. Adult - Forced Mask Wearing in the workplace


Many employers are sadly taking advantage of this current situation to bully, intimidate and threaten their staff for whatever personal reasons they have for doing so, however; it is illegal for employers not to adhere to their employees human rights and equality which are being threatened on a daily basis.  Any employers insisting on mask wearing to those exempted by the government via an exemption card/badge etc., are actually breaking the mandatory rules of the Coronavirus Act 2020 and as such are in breach of the governments Act and their employees human rights.  This letter will remind employers of your rights and your exemption by the government from wearing a mask in the workplace, which is not only inhibiting but in many may cause unnecessary illness.  Please copy and paste or download the PDF, complete the details in Italics such as name, address and your employers name and address, date etc., send to the head of the relevant department, keeping a copy for yourself.  Please sign the letter and obtain a witness signature (they must be 18 years or over) this formalises the letter making it a legal document.

Re: Exemption from wearing a Mask due to hidden disabilities - Equality Act 2010 – Discrimination (Section 13 & Section 15)

I understand that I am now required to wear a mask during working hours in order to carry out my duties. I wish to inform you that I hold a Government Exemption Card in accordance with the 'Coronavirus Act 2020' this card issued by the Government guarantees me full exemption from wearing any mask or shield in accordance with my protected disability rights and in conjunction with the Equality Act 2010 (Section 13 & Section 15) in which it is illegal to show discrimination or question persons on the particulars of their said disability (Maximum fine is £9,000 Nine thousand pounds) against anyone who suffers from hidden disabilities which prevents them from wearing a mask or shield.

I cannot wear a mask/splashback shield due to hidden disabilities which have significant effect on my health and welfare and by law this must be accepted any such refusal to accept the Government Exemption Card is breaching my human rights (UNESCO Bioethics & Human Rights 2005: Article 6.1 UK Law - Consent) by forcing my consent i.e. making changes to my employment contract or limiting/prejudicing my rights to work as a result of my disability is in direct contravention of my human & disability rights.

Yours faithfully
