Disability Awareness

 
Disabled people can be a valuable asset to the workplace if supported to integrate into the working environment.

Many disabled people though find it difficult to remain in employment not due to an unwilliness to work but due to the lack of support or empathy from the employer or their work colleagues.

The Equality Act 2010 quite clearly states that if a job applicant or employee is disabled then the employee must consider making reasonable adjustments to enable that person to stay within the workplace.

Very often employers discriminate as they either treat a disabled employee differently to a non-disabled employee or fail to consider making reasonable adjustments. This could ultimately mean the employer having to answer for this within an employment tribunal. This can be extremely costly and damaging to a company’s image. This can be avoided and in some cases the adjustments needed can be funded by government grants such as Access to Work.

GHC have years of experiencing of supporting disabled people, this has enabled us to build up extensive knowledge of how to support disabled people in the workplace as well as being able to identify the best way forward for disabled employees and the employer.
