23 Jan

30th January 2013 – Corporate Health Slough

Would you feel comfortable handling a discrimination claim by one of your employees?

Are you up to speed with the Equality Act?

Disability and discrimination is also an area where tailored and expert legal and OH advice can really make a difference to any outcome. In this event we will talk about what to expect, how to manage it, when to seek advice and from whom.
Corporate Health, in partnership with Owen White solicitors, have the pleasure in inviting you or a colleague to our first networking and HR community forum event on the 30th January in Slough, from 9am to 11am. This will be a great opportunity to firstly network amongst fellow HR peers as well as with a local specialist in discriminatory law and an Occupational Health specialist. During this open discussion, our team of experts, including you, will advise, discuss and strategise about key problems areas for HR concerning long term absence, including:

  • Did the law change when the Equality Act came into force in October 2010?
  • What is the legal definition of a disability?
  • What is “less favourable treatment”?
  • How reasonable do reasonable adjustments have to be?
  • What if the employer does not know of the employee’s disability?
