DRC Codes of Practice - Consultation

  • Posted

The Disability Rights Commission is in the process of issuing two new Codes of Practice, to reflect changes to the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 which come into force next year.

The draft Codes have been put out to consultation (until 30th November). The DRC invites comments on the Codes, and has questionnaires on its website enabling interested parties to make representations.

The two Codes are entitled:

  • Employment and Occupation Code of Practice; and,
  • Trade Organisations and Qualifications Bodies Code of Practice
