“Top Tips: Equality In The Workplace For Disabled Employees”

Our friends at the UK law firm of Martin Searle Solicitors posted a fact sheet entitled “Top Tips: Equality In The Workplace For Disabled Employees.”

Top, Top Ten, Best, Hit Parade, Charts

These tips are, of course, written for a UK employer audience, and I encourage our UK readers to review them.  But US employers would also do well to take a quick read to see how the UK deals with disabilities in the workplace.  Not much different than in the US.

Tip number 7 reads:  “Many disabilities are not obvious – particularly mental health impairments.  Look out for changes in your employees usual behavior.  This can include a marked drop in performance, tiredness, increased sickness absence, and out of character behavior such as aggression.”

Any thoughts on this tip?

Takeaway:  How many of the ten tips are equally applicable in the US – do you know?
