As a way to try and tackle and prevent disability discrimination in the workplace, Acas have published a guide. It’s completely free and is called Disability Discrimination: Key Points for The Workplace, for a quick link you can find it here.
The guide helps employers to understand exactly what is meant by the term disability, how it can happen and how to prevent and manage complaints. This is a reaction from Acas, due to their helpline receiving around 12,000 calls in the past year, all relating to disability discrimination.
Many employers understand that disability is a complex area when it comes to employment law and disabled people who seek work have found that misconceptions of their capability to work, were stopping them being hired.
Don’t forget, you can find a copy of the guide here. For support or guidance with any HR matter, contact us on 01909 512 120 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
