  • what indirect disability discrimination means for your organisation
  • ‘filtering’ guidance on pre-employment health questions
  • making physical reasonable adjustments in your organisation
  • making reasonable adjustments to policies and procedures, for example for sickness absence, performance management and redeployment
  • fair selection when considering redundancies in the workplace.
