Event details

We would be delighted if you could join staff from the Legal Advice Centre for this breakfast seminar, designed to support local businesses and enterprises. The Centre has launched a Business and Enterprise Law Service and will hold a series of events in 2017 to enable start-up businesses and small enterprises to better understand their legal rights and obligations. This event is open to organisations in both the for-profit and not-for-profit sectors.

The seminar will use autism as a focus point. Autism is a lifelong developmental condition that can affect how a person perceives the world and how they interact with others. There are around 700,000 people in the UK living with an autism spectrum disorder (‘ASD’) - more than 1 in 100 of the population. Individuals with an ASD often face challenges with social communication and social interaction, and these challenges are particularly prevalent in the workplace. Nevertheless, simple, low-cost adjustments can be implemented to help successfully integrate an autistic person into an employment setting. People with autism may well be considered to be disabled, as defined by the Equality Act 2010, and so require reasonable adjustments to be made when at work.

This seminar will explain not just how to comply with relevant legislation but the practical implications of employing someone with an identified disability.

This event is part supported by Enabling Innovation, which is a three-year collaborative project between Nottingham Trent University, the University of Nottingham and the University of Derby to support SMEs in Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire to innovate. It is part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund (“ERDF”).
