The IDS Employment Law Handbooks on Westlaw UK Books provide expert perspective on all aspects of employment law. The topic of disability, previously covered by IDS in the Discrimination at Work Handbook, has grown substantially. As a result, we have introduced a new volume focused solely on Disability. This new Disability volume within the IDS Employment Law Handbooks will make it easier to navigate this challenging area of employment and discrimination law and save you time by bringing together all aspects of disability discrimination law in the workplace:
- the definition of ‘disability’,
- the duty to make reasonable adjustments, and the concept of discrimination arising from disability,
- how other forms of unlawful discrimination under the 2010 Act apply in the context of disability,
- the circumstances in which disability discrimination might occur before, during and after employment,
- the restriction on employers asking pre-employment health questions; and
- the disability-specific exemptions from liability under the 2010 Act.
The detailed treatment of the new topics in the Disability volume is based on chapters formerly contained in the Discrimination at Work Handbook, which have been extensively revised and updated by the IDS team. Going forward, this will include shorter overview chapters on disability-specific areas of the 2010 Act. As with all the IDS Employment Law Handbooks on Westlaw UK Books, there is extensive interlinking between the volumes, and with primary law, to help you complete your research more efficiently and with confidence that you haven’t left anything out.
