Under the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA), no employer can not employ you just on the grounds that you have IIH / a disability.  If you are able to perform the job description and pass any occupational health assessment - it should be a level playing field.

All companies and definately the police force have an equal rights policy.  Also under the DDA employers are required to make any necessary and reasonable adjustments to your working environment as you  need it.  In theory.....

Good luck!

If its the police you want to get into I know their medical criteria are quite strict. A friend got rejected because he'd had a minor op to remove an ingrowing hair on his back. He could have applied again after sufficient time had elapsed but didn't want to wait that long.

btw they also have a tattoo policy!

Good luck with your job hunting.
