Disability discrimination in the workplace , by Kate Russell, BA, barrister, MA


The Disability Discrimination Act 1995, later replaced by The Equality Act 2010, introduced a range of rights and protections for disabled employees. In addition to the original rights, some of which have been further strengthened, there is now legal protection for those who are able bodied themselves, but are associated with a disabled person; and employers must now defer the collection of medical data in the recruitment process in most cases until after an offer has been made.
This book sets out the steps that employers should take to ensure compliance.
