New Acas disability discrimination guide
21 December 2015
In 2014 Acas received nearly 12,000 calls to their helpline related to disability issues and received almost 3,000 disability discrimination employment tribunal cases.
Getting disability related issues wrong can be costly. Acas has a new free guide to help employers understand what disability is, and isn't, and how to manage related issues.
Research shows that employers with a diverse workforce can reap many business benefits as they can tap into the knowledge and skills of staff from a wide range of backgrounds.
Further resources for employers:
- Equality - understanding the basics
- Asking and responding to questions of discrimination in the workplace guidance
- Acas discrimination training
- Promoting positive mental health at work
