Employment and reasonable adjustments
Do you know what support might be available to you or your employer following your MS diagnosis while in employment?
Are you working from home or returning to your workplace and need access to reasonable adjustments? Or perhaps you’re wondering how your energy levels will be if you’re returning to the daily commute and whether you’ll be able to manage?
This session will take place on Thursday 18 November at 7pm
Whatever your question about employment and reasonable adjustments, we can help! Join our webinar, where our panel of experts will be discussing these, and many other questions that the MS community has asked.
We will be joined by a panel of experts including Steve Hall, Solicitor and MS legal officer at the Disability Law Service. Steve works with the MS Society to provide advice on employment, discrimination and welfare benefits. We will also be joined by Laura Bosworth founder and director of Worket, with a background in specialist inclusive hiring practices and employer branding. Our panel will also have volunteers with various work backgrounds from teachers to human resources.
This will be your chance to put your questions to our panel and to find out more about what reasonable adjustments can help your return to work.
