DISABILITY AND “HIDDEN” IMPAIRMENTS IN THE WORKPLACE - WALES TUC
Wales TUC have produced a toolkit on Disability and “Hidden” Impairments in the Workplace (https://www.tuc.org.uk/sites/default/files/DHIWtoolkitEng.pdf 76pp)
The aim of this toolkit is to provide information to help union officers and reps to improve disability equality in the workplace and represent disabled members, including those with non-visible or ‘hidden’ impairments. It aims to help reps to address workplace issues and barriers that can create problems for disabled workers.
Whilst there some parts that are focused on campaigning in Wales specifically, it provides tools and ideas to help union reps tackle discrimination as well as examples of good practice which are applicable to all workplaces.
I would be grateful if you could bring the contents of this circular to the attention of your members.
