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.

The impact of involuntary job loss on those disabled by society: a pilot study to encourage effective participation

Authors:
BRADLEY E. J., et al
Journal article citation:
Disability and Society, 19(3), May 2004, pp.245-258.
Publisher:
Taylor and Francis,

Over half of the people who become disabled whilst employed are thought to be pressured into leaving their job. This study investigates the experience of involuntary retirement/redundancy due to disability. Three researchers who had all experienced such involuntary job loss were trained to conduct the research. Semi-structured interviews were designed and conducted by disabled researchers. The training of the researchers enabled them to successfully conduct a research project. The results of the project show the impact of involuntary job loss due to disability to be considerable. This study would suggest that government reforms to create new opportunities for disabled people of a working age are well overdue. Although there were some problems experienced with the amount of training required and the lack of objectivity, training disabled researchers to conduct research proved to be a valuable experience for both the researchers and the facilitators.
