Know Your Rights! Disability and employment quick guide launched !

Disability Action’s Employment Advocacy Service has launched a new resource: ‘Getting into Work: Reasonable Adjustments & Positive Action’. The Quick Guide outlines disabled people’s rights when applying for a job, what employers must do and what positive actions they can take to increase the number of disabled people they employ.

The Employment Advocacy Service helps disabled people who are experiencing difficulties or discrimination in the workplace.  Support is provided by Peer Advocates who are disabled people.  The latest quick guide is the third in the series and outlines what is expected of employers under the Disability Discrimination Act and the positive actions they can take during the recruitment process.  The work is funded by the Department for Communities.

The Employment Advocacy Service has created a series of 'Quick Guides'. These guides are intended to be informative yet brief, giving a solid overview of key points and contact information for further advice/clarification if necessary.
