Overview

CPD Certified - contributes 1 point towards your CPD.

Discriminatory attitudes, inaccurate assumptions and stereotypes lead to qualified and capable disabled people being denied job opportunities that are available to the non disabled. Statistics from the Government’s Labour Force Survey reveal that significantly fewer disabled people of working age have jobs, compared to those without impairments, and those that do have jobs are less well paid on average than those who are not impaired.

These statistics make it clear that workplace discrimination against disabled people is a problem. Fortunately it is a problem that the
law is designed to address vigorously – with substantial penalties for those who fall short.

This course is for all members of an organisation that need a base level understanding of the subject and its practical application.
