Employer Disability Information Service
An Employer Disability Information service has recently been launched. The service is managed by a consortium of employer organisations including Chambers Ireland, IBEC and ISME and is funded through the NDA, as part of the comprehensive employment strategy for people with disabilities. The service provides Confidential Advice and Information for Employers on the Recruitment, Employment and Retention of People with Disabilities. The purpose of the Employer Disability Information service is to provide employers with an expert peer source of advice and information on employing staff with disabilities, with a view to enhancing the confidence and competence of individual employers to employ, manage and retain staff with disabilities. The ultimate aim is to promote increased employment of people with disabilities. The EDI website includes advice on issues such as Inclusive Recruitment and Management, Acquired Disability, Reasonable Accommodation, Health and Safety, and Rights & Responsibilities. An employer helpline is also available.
