National Conference Centre
Early bird by 5.10.23
Timings (Final timings tbc)
The speakers will cover topics that provide information on how to assist clients in practice, who to commission to plan and support an effective and realistic return to work, and how to help clients build skills and confidence for getting and keeping a fulfilling work role. It is well documented that COVID-19 has had a significant effect on working practices for the whole population and this will be explored in relation to how some of the changes may have expanded opportunities for those with complex needs and also the impact it has had on inclusivity. Balancing work with the requirement to attend health appointments and manage fatigue (cognitive, physical, and psychological) will also be considered. The solicitors giving presentations will provide information and guidance on relevant legal frameworks in place to protect clients from discrimination when in work, for example reasonable adjustments, terms and conditions, benefits, performance reviews, handling absences, and training and development.
The conference aims to provide a comprehensive overview of the various aspects to consider when assisting someone with a health condition into work, and it promises to raise questions or issues, introduce new ideas, and be a thought-provoking event…………..we look forward to seeing you there!
