When: 12.00 - 2.00pm, Tuesday 09 May 2017

Where: One Edinburgh Quay, Edinburgh, EH3 9QG
This event is being organised by BTO Solicitors
This particular event is free to attend, so no payment is required.

Following on from their session on stress at work, BTO Solicitors will consider the latest position in relation to disability discrimination law and practice. Disability discrimination claims are becoming increasingly common and the law can be complicated. This session will consider the following:

  • What is the legal definition of disability?

  • Can stress amount to a disability in law?

  • What recent cases have there been on disability discrimination law?

  • What is the current position in relation to reasonable adjustments?

  • How do I manage disabled staff given the competing needs of the organisation?

This practical session will provide delegates with an up to date understanding of disability discrimination law and practice and offer practical pointers for managing the often complex and competing rights and issues that can arise in this area.
