For many Employers, disabled Employees are recognised as valuable and equally significant members of staff. Thus the disabled workforce is increasing. The Disability Discrimination Act 1995 in Northern Ireland and the Employment Equality Act, 1998 in the Republic of Ireland introduced a number of protective measures for disabled workers. This means that an Employer must not treat a disabled individual any differently than he would treat any other member of staff. The legislation requires the Employer to make reasonable adjustments (NI)/reasonable accommodation (ROI) to working conditions. This includes premises and working hours/practices and procedures.

Tackling equality and targeting social need: improving the infrastructure

This paper considers two recent initiatives in Northern Ireland relating to targeting social need and inequalities. While the paper deals with each separately they should be seen as complementary. The first initiative is a legislative duty found in Section 75 of the 1998 Northern Ireland Act, which followed the ‘Good Friday (or Belfast)Agreement’. This requires public authorities to pay due regard to the promotion of equality of opportunity for nine categories of people. In brief, the nine equality categories relate to: gender, age, marital status, disability, with/without dependants, religious belief, political opinion, racial group, and sexual orientation. The Northern Ireland Act also requires public bodies to promote good relations between people of different religious belief, political opinion or racial group. The second initiative is a cross Departmental policy New Targeting Social Need (New TSN) which aims to tackle social need and social exclusion. While unique to Northern Ireland, New TSN has features similar to other strategies in Great Britain that are designed to combat deprivation, disadvantage, poverty and social exclusion.

The period 1950-2000 is of particular significance and importance in Northern Ireland. During this time the recognition of the needs of children, and the responsibility both collectively and individually to meet these, has moved increasingly to the forefront of society. Prime importance is now given by the legislators and specific statutory and voluntary organisations to ensuring that children, with a range of social, physical and emotional needs have access to services to enable them to achieve their full potential. Increasingly this right is being enshrined in legislation.
