This work addresses a very important issue, and one that has become more important in the light of the Disability Discrimination Act of 1995. Since the introduction of the Act the law requires all organizations employing 15 or more people not to discriminate unfairly against disabled applicants and employees, and to provide reasonable adjustments, with all that this implies. This volume points out how the legislative changes affect companies, and the practical steps that need to be taken, from the top of the company downwards, to ensure minimum disruption and maximum benefit. This new edition also includes the full text of the Disability Rights Commission Act 1999, which will strengthen the legislature even further.Back Injury Not Disability Rowley v Walkers Nonsuch Ltd As a result of a back injury suffered at work, Mrs Rowley went on sick leave. ... she had a physical impairment which had, at that time, a substantial and long-term adverse effect on her ability to carry out normal day-to-day activities. ...
