Re: Formal Complaint regarding prejudice and discrimination shown to me as a Student at (Name of College/University)
I am writing to make a formal complaint against (name of college/university) for which I am a (part/full time) student. I was approached by (Name of person discriminating) and due to suffering medical/hidden disabilities was instructed that I was unable to continue my education at the College unless I wear a face mask. By requesting and demanding that I wear a face mask despite my medical disability and government exemption (as per the Coronavirus Act 2020), the College has breached my human rights to try to enforce mask wearing and breaching my right of consent. I am within my rights not to wear a face mask or divulge my disability to anyone as confirmed in the Equality Act 2010, to be forced to divulge my disability to anyone incurs a compensation fine of up to £9,000 Nine thousand pounds).
As I am sure you are aware by refusing me access to my education as a direct result of Discrimination and prejudice due to my disability and inability to wear a face mask/shield, this is in breach of my human rights (UNESCO Bioethics & Human Rights 2005) - (Article 6.1 UK law and Article 6.1 & 6.3 which reads:
UNESCO Bioethics & Human Rights 2005 -Article 6 – Consent
1. Any preventive, diagnostic and therapeutic medical intervention is only to be carried out with the prior, free and informed consent of the person concerned, based on adequate information. The consent should, where appropriate, be express and may be withdrawn by the person concerned at any time and for any reason without disadvantage or prejudice.
Article 6.3 In appropriate cases of research carried out on a group of persons or a community, additional agreement of the legal representatives of the group or community concerned may be sought. In no case should a collective community agreement or the consent of a community leader or other authority substitute for an individual's informed consent.
The College is also guilty of breaching the Equality Act 2010 – Article 14 & 15 Discrimination and Harassment. (See link Article 14 & 15 – Discrimination and Harassment. See link: https://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/2010/15/section/14
My inability to wear a mask due to my disability is covered in accordance with the government's exemption and at no time can the College remove my rights to continue my education unhindered and should not remove, disadvantage or prejudice against me by refusing me my right to education and activities offered to me prior to the College enforcing face masks upon its students and especially those such as myself who are disabled and for which the College is in breach of the Coronavirus Act 2020.
This formal complaint requires your urgent attention to enable the matter to be dealt with on a formal basis, should I not receive an apology and be allowed to continue my education immediately in line with my Equality and Human Rights, then this matter will be referred to my solicitor whereby I will require substantial compensation for the upset, distress, 'Discrimination' and 'Prejudice' I have suffered at the hands of the College, this matter will be dealt with in accordance with a court of law.
I trust you will give this matter your urgent attention and look forward to hearing from you within fourteen days.
