Event description
In this Early Bird series we will be looking at the duty placed on employers to make reasonable adjustments for disabled employees.

About this Event

The duty to make reasonable adjustments crops up regularly in claims for disability discrimination, and is a duty that employers frequently misunderstand in practice. At this session we will cover to whom the duty is owed, the circumstances when the duty arises and the steps employers should take in order to satisfy the statutory requirements and avoid the consequences of a successful tribunal claim.

We will look in particular at:

• What is meant by the requirement to provide employees with ‘auxiliary aids’.

• When employers should consider making reasonable adjustments to procedures in the workplace, for example when following disciplinary or capability procedures.

• The duty for employers to make changes to physical features of premises and how far this duty extends.

We will also provide a round-up of some of the key recent developments in employment law.

A light breakfast will be included.

If you have any questions please contact Elaine Snedker on 01223 643103.
