Our friends at the UK law firm of Martin Searle Solicitors posted a fact sheet entitled “Top Tips: Equality In The Workplace For Disabled Employees.”
These tips are, of course, written for a UK employer audience, and I encourage our UK readers to review them. But US employers would also do well to take a quick read to see how the UK deals with disabilities in the workplace. Not much different than in the US.
Tip number 7 reads: “Many disabilities are not obvious – particularly mental health impairments. Look out for changes in your employees usual behavior. This can include a marked drop in performance, tiredness, increased sickness absence, and out of character behavior such as aggression.”
Any thoughts on this tip?
Takeaway: How many of the ten tips are equally applicable in the US – do you know?
