Please feel free to read Jenna Ide’s article on “Hidden Disabilities” which was recently published in the Employment Solicitor Magazine (http://www.employmentsolicitor.com/hidden-disabilities-employers-need-know/), which may help to give you a flavour of why it is important for employers to take special care when it comes to dealing with employees with “hidden disabilities”.

If you would like to book any places at the seminar, please feel free to drop me, Susi Gillespie an email or let me know if you have any questions.
