A Video from our employment experts Caroline Shafar and Stuart Craig where they explored the legal issues around managing hidden disabilities in the workplace

In this video, employment experts Caroline Shafar and Stuart Craig covered the following:

  • What is a hidden disability and how does it fall within the definition of disability in the Equality Act?
  • If a disability is hidden, how, as an employer, are you meant to know that someone is disabled?
  • The duty to make reasonable adjustments – what does it mean and how to implement adjustments in practice.
  • Lessons learned from cases.
