Disability Awareness Course

Disability Awareness Course

  • It is unlawful to discriminate against someone who has a disability by treating disabled employees less favorably for a reason related to their disability without justification. Employers are legally responsible for ensuring that discrimination does not occur in the any workplace. This includes the need to make reasonable adjustments in recruitment and selection and work arrangements and the working environment in order to accommodate disabled people. 
  • The Law provides protection against discrimination that happens at work, in the provision of services, public functions and premises, and in education. It does so by making discrimination unlawful in a number of ways, and by providing legal remedies to individuals who experience discrimination.
