Advanced Employment Law: Disability Discrimination

3 November 2021 9:00am–1:00pm

It can be difficult to recognise when members have a realistic chance of proving disability discrimination and activists may lack confidence in this area. This course will give practical skills for discussing the matter with members and recognising possible cases. More generally, it will build skills of interviewing members and analysing evidence which can be applied to supporting members with any issues.

This course is aimed at experienced reps, who should be ERA accredited and have a basic understanding of employment law (for example, through having attended an Introduction to Employment Law course in their region). The course will be delivered over three morning sessions (9am to 1pm) on the 3rd, 10th and 17th of November 2021.

To apply, you must:

  • Be ERA accredited and active in supporting and representing members
  • Have previously completed Introduction to Employment Law or advanced employment law course
  • Be able to commit to attending on the above dates for the full sessions
  • Be able to access a reliable internet connection and have a computer or tablet on which to access Microsoft Teams
  • Have permission from your employer if you are using their IT equipment
  • Have agreed facility time (time off) from your employer to attend all three sessions if attending during working hours
  • Be prepared to spend approx. 1 hour at home before each training session on exercises which we will send you in advance
  • Have agreement from your branch to attend

If your application is successful a charge of £150 will be made to your branch. This will go towards covering the cost of the tutor, resources including a copy of the law book, printing and postage.
