Safeguarding the employment rights of the disabled

A question posed by a disabled member of the audience sought assurance from the panel that, given the current economic downturn, disabled people would be protected in the workplace. The panel were unanimous in their faith in, and support for, the Disability Discrimination Act.

Sean Neeson from the Alliance Party added that he felt employers needed to be more proactive in employing people with a disability.

Do you think disabled people are still under-represented in the workplace?
