The Disability Discrimination Act and its implications for employers and suppliers of products and services is the topic for the latest in the successful BCS series of practical guides for professionals and business managers.
Geoff Busby, chairman of the BCS Disability specialist group, says disabled people can help to fill the IT skills gap - but only if employers can make them feel valued and secure. Understanding the legislation can bring this about.
The 60-page A4 guide follows the question-and-answer format of the other guides in the series on e-commerce, data protection, the euro and the year 2000.
It includes definitions of disability and has sections for employers, suppliers and on IT - in terms of both the potential and the demands of the legislation.
Disability Discrimination Act: Access for All is available at £15 to BCS members and £20 to non-members, including postage. It can be ordered on 01793-417424.
