Employment and Disability

The Disability Discrimination Act states that a disability should not bar a person from employment unless it would genuinely and significantly impede that person from doing the work in question, and there is nothing you can reasonably be expected to do to overcome this.

The Equality Commission in Northern Ireland works to ensure that people with disabilities attain their full rights as citizens, by supporting inclusion, influencing Government policy and changing attitudes in partnership with disabled people.  They can be telephoned on (028) 9049 1011
