Basics in preventing disability discrimination at work

Workplace relations experts Acas has produced a new guide to help prevent disability discrimination at work.

The guide, ‘Disability discrimination: key points for the workplace’, aims to help employers understand the basics around equality and disability discrimination and how to manage related issues.
Acas’ Head of Equality points out that

“Disability is a complex area of employment law that can encompass many conditions or situations that employers may not be aware of.

“… falling on the wrong side of the law can result in a costly employment tribunal.”
