Disability Act 2005 – It is an Act of Parliament that was passed in the UK to ensure that disabled people have the same rights as other citizens. The Disability Act has been passed to make it easier for disabled people to get employment and to provide them with equal opportunities in all areas of life. This includes the ability to access public services, and to participate fully in society.
Employment – Employers who are covered by the Disability Act must not discriminate against disabled employees. They should give them the same training and support as they would give to non-disabled employees. If a disabled employee is not able to do his job, then he must be given help to find another suitable position. This may mean that he needs to take time off work. The employer is also required to pay for any reasonable adjustments which may be necessary to allow him to carry out his duties.
If you have a disabled employee in your company, you should check if they are covered by the Disability Act. You can do this by checking the Disability Discrimination Act. You should also check if the employee has any specific disabilities.
Disability Compliant – A business should be disability compliant if they have at least one disabled person working for them. This is because disabled people can have different needs. Some of these needs may not be met by the normal workplace. For example, a disabled person may need more help with dressing or undressing than someone without a disability.
In addition, some disabled people may have more difficulty than others with certain aspects of their job. For example, a disabled accountant may have trouble using a computer mouse.
You should also consider whether your business is accessible to disabled customers. This means that you should make sure that the building where your business is based is accessible to disabled people. You should also consider how you can meet the needs of disabled customers if they visit your premises. This may include providing ramps, lifts, toilets, and special seating.
