New advice hub to help disabled people understand their rights at work

Acas has launched a new advice hub to help disabled people understand their rights at work.

Acas Chief Executive, Susan Clews, said:

“Our new hub explains how the law protects disabled people from discrimination at work and the basic rights that they are entitled to.

“It is also a great resource for employers to help them create diverse, inclusive workplaces that are welcoming to disabled people and promotes equal opportunities for all employees.

“Advice on the hub includes tips on how to prevent disability discrimination, how to make reasonable adjustments and how employees can raise complaints about disability discrimination at work.”

The hub is a joint initiative between the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy and Acas that’s being promoted as part of the government’s new National Disability Strategy.
