This guidance focuses on the role of the line manager in workplace adjustments, langauge and behaviour and sickness absence. It also provides guidance on recruiting, retaining and developing employees with a disability or health condition.
It has been created by the Disability Confident scheme in collaboration with CIPD, a professional body for HR and people development.
The Disability Confident scheme aims to help employers make the most of the opportunities provided by employing and developing disabled people.
It is voluntary and has been developed by employers, disabled people’s representatives and the government. The scheme has 3 levels that have been designed to support employers on their Disability Confident journey.
