Wave-length Webinar – Managing Disability in the Workplace

How do you best manage disability/reasonable adjustment needs through the recruitment and interview process and then into the workplace?

When: 11th June, 2014

With the outlawing of pre medicals ahead of shortlisting new recruits and with the risk that asking for past sickness records might also be challenged legally; how do you ensure that your processes are robust and that you are choosing the right people?  Also:

  • Can I ask about reasonable adjustment requirements in the interview process if someone clearly has a disability? Might this be seen as discriminatory? Are there grants available for equipment?
  • And what if an existing employee gains a disability whilst in your employment? What support is out there? What best practice measures can be put in place?

This Wave-length Webinar – Managing Disability in the Workplace will explore all of these areas.

The Webinar will becoming live from Wolverhampton University and delivered by Ann Johnson of Wave-length CIC.  The session will start at 1.30pm and conclude at 2.30pm.

This session will be our first Wave-length Webinar and for this reason we are allowing people to sign on the session for free, so that the process can be tested in full.  We would welcome your feedback afterwards on what might be improved etc.   The session will be 1 hour long, 15 minutes maximum testing and understanding set up and then 45minutes interactive presentation.

Thank you to Wolverhampton University (Innovation 1st) for providing Wave-length CIC with the room, IT and expertise to deliver this webinar.

Training from your desktop – will require you to have a suitable computer, speakers so that you can hear the session we can help by advising on this.  You will be able to ask questions throughout the session via your keyboard and for those with webcams there will be an opportunity to ask questions verbally.

As this is our first Wave-length Webinar we would ask you to contact us directly by email to book ann@wave-length.org.uk  as we will need to liaise with you around set-up etc.  We will be limiting the first on-line session to 12 attendees on a first come first serve basis.

Please note: Other Wave-length Webinars will follow however future ones will come at a small cost so as to cover costs for running the session, however we would imagine that any cost you would incur would be more than recovered through savings made on mileage and time to leave your office to attend even a free workshop.

Should you require any further information about the above please contact Ann Johnson via ann@wave-length.org.uk or telephone 01952 670404
