Description:

This is the first of two practical sessions which will examine some of the key issues that arise in avoiding disability discrimination in the workplace.

In this session the following important points will be examined:

  • What is “disability” in law?
  • What about knowledge of disability – Can I know what I don’t know?
  • What about the effect of medication?
  • Is stress a disability?
  • Discrimination claims – direct and indirect discrimination, and discrimination arising from disability. 
    • What is the legal basis of these claims and when could they arise in practice?


This is an essential session for all employers given the increasing number of disability discrimination claims and the complexity of such claims. Given the absence of any cap on compensation for such claims, this seminar is not to be missed.
