Discrimination arising from disability – what is the claim and how can it be avoided?

About this event

Join us for our next Workshop: How to Handle Discrimination Claims from Mental Health taking place on Wednesday 27 July 2022. Secure your place now for only £50 + VAT.

Sometimes people who have mental health problems are treated unfavourably because of their mental health condition - this is discrimination, meaning that anyone who faces it has a legal right to challenge it. So, how can you avoid such claims, and how would you handle any that arise?

Hosted by Jodie Hill, founder and Managing Partner of multi-award winning Thrive Law, this 45-minute workshop focuses on:

  • What does a discrimination claim mean?
  • How can employers defend a discrimination claim?
  • The impact of discrimination on misconduct claims in the workplace which may perhaps be caused by an underlying mental health condition.
  • Case studies and previous case law which provide guidance on mental health and 'arising from' claims.
  • Example of best practice to avoid these kind of claims.

Followed by 15 minutes of Q&As.

When: Wednesday 27 July 2022 at 2pm

Price: £50 + VAT
