Breakfast Briefing Disability Discrimination - Avoiding the Pitfalls
This timely seminar will help you avoid the pitfalls, provide a useful reminder of the key legal concepts, and update you on recent case law.
The law on disability discrimination is complex and can be a minefield for employers. Was an employer’s insistence on a multiple choice psychometric test unlawful discrimination against a candidate with Asperger’s Syndrome (Government Legal Service v Brookes)?
Can an employer be liable for disability-related discrimination if it does not know the employee is disabled? Gallop v Newport City Council provides essential guidance on the point.
Does an employer need to know about the link between a disability and an employee’s misconduct in a discrimination arising from disability discrimination claim? We share the learning from the important recent case of City of York v Grosset.
Is an employer expected to protect the pay of a disabled employee (G4S Cash Solutions (UK) Ltd v Powell) ? Could an expectation that an employee works long hours be considered a provision criterion or practice for the purposes of a reasonable adjustment claim? (Carreras v United First Partnership Research).
Finally, what adjustments for disability are reasonable (FirstGroup Plc v Paulley) ?
This seminar is free of charge.
Please recommend this event to your colleagues.
