Disability Discrimination Guidance Notes
These Disability Discrimination Guidance Notes provide information for employers and prospective employees and can be used to identify a disability and to facilitate the making of any reasonable adjustments once it is identified. They have been written in line with the Equality Act 2010 and as such can be sent out to each applicant with the relevant Job Application Form, the Job Application Guidance Notes, and the Equal Opportunities Recruitment Monitoring Form as part of the employer’s compliance with relevant disability legislation.
These guidance notes can help the company to comply with equal opportunities legislation, and deal with the employer’s obligations to make reasonable adjustments once an employee is identified as disabled under the Equality Act. In respect of mental health issues in the workplace, ACAS has produced helpful guidance for employers, including examples of reasonable adjustments that could be made to support workers with mental health issues.
