New Advice Hub for Disabled People

A new advice hub is being launched to help disabled people understand their employment rights as part of plans to remove the barriers they face in work and business.

The online hub, a joint partnership between the Business Department and the Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service (Acas), will provide clear advice to both disabled people and employers on employment rights – from discrimination in the workplace to reasonable adjustments. Going live today, it will draw together the relevant information in one place for the first time, to help ensure disabled people can make the most of their workplace rights.

Have a look at the new National Disability Strategy, which aims to take concrete steps to improve the working lives of disabled people and carers, and make the UK a great place for them to do business.
