Thorntons Employment Law Academy – Disability & Reasonable Adjustments

29 February 2024, 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Employers are legally obliged to take steps to minimise difficulties or disadvantages which may arise in the workplace for those with a disability. These steps are known as reasonable adjustments. It is crucial that employers are aware of their responsibilities towards employees and job applicants who require reasonable adjustments.

This workshop aims to provide attendees with the necessary knowledge to manage reasonable adjustment requests and ensure that employees with disabilities are treated fairly. Not only will this help all employees to feel supported and well-equipped to do their jobs, it will also reduce the risk of discrimination and other tribunal claims.

In this half day workshop, Employment Law specialist Noele McClelland will look at issues such as:

The duty of care as an employer.
Examples of reasonable adjustments.
Responding to a request for reasonable adjustments during recruitment and employment.
The risks of failing to make reasonable adjustments.
Best practice and creating a disability positive environment.
Who should attend?
HR professionals
Business owners
Managers and those with people management responsibilities
This is a half day workshop. Qualifies as 3 hours CIPD.

The costs of each workshop is £125+VAT per person, which includes all papers.
