EMPLOYERS' GUIDE TO DISABILITY DISCRIMINATION ACT

New guidance for employers to end discrimination against disabled people at work was launched today by education and employment minister Lord Henley.

The booklet 'Disability Discrimination Act 1995 - What Employers Need to Know', was launched at the same time as a two-week television and radio advertising campaign to promote the employment provisions of the Act which come into effect on 2 December this year.

Lord Henley said: 'The act is the most significant piece of legislation for disabled people ever introduced in this country. It makes it unlawful for an employer with 20 or more workers to treat a disabled person less favourably than others.'

The new booklet explains who is covered by the act, and gives examples of how employers can avoid discrimination in the workplace.
