As part of the Disability Confident campaign, the Department for Work and Pensions recently published a practical guide for line managers on recruiting, managing and developing people with a disability or health condition.

Although use of the guidance is voluntary, it is a valuable tool for line managers or other employers who seek to improve their knowledge and confidence when attracting, recruiting and managing those with a disability or long-term sickness. The guidance details the legal responsibilities of an employer and provides examples of workplace adjustments an employer may implement to enable disabled employees remain in work and carry out their job effectively.
