ICTU Belfast 

This is a general introduction to the law that bans disability discrimination against disabled employees and job-seekers; providing a broad overview of the subject. As part of this seminar we will also touch on the most important element of the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA); namely the reasonable adjustment duty that it imposes on employers. For example, it will discuss how the duty may apply to absence management procedures.
