TUC publishes new guide to epilepsy in the workplace

07 May 2015

The TUC, in partnership with Epilepsy Action, has published guide, to aid trade union workplace representatives in supporting members with epilepsy.

The guide was written for the TUC by Epilepsy Action and is based on the social model of disability, which means epilepsy is not seen as a barrier to work. However, there may be external barriers to accessing work in the form of ignorance, prejudice and failure by employers to make workplace adaptations.

The guide educates trade union members about epilepsy, and provides guidance on reasonable workplace adjustments and making workplaces epilepsy-friendly.
