An interview with Terri Brookes In this weeks' episode I interview Terri Brookes who applied for a job as a trainee solicitor with the Government Legal Service (GLS) and requested a reasonable adjustment as a result of her aspergers. When the GLS refused to make adjustments to their recruitment process Terri made a claim in the Employment Tribunal. After winning her case in the Employment Tribunal the GLS appealed to the Employment Appeal Tribunal and Terri successfully defended her claim. In this episode I will cover: The facts of the case; The reasons why Terri pursued the case; Helpful guidance on reasonable adjustments that are required and should be considered in the recruitment process; Why you need to treat each person with disabilities individually in the recruitment process; Key points about cases in the Employment Appeal Tribunal. Action Points If you are recruiting and you have tests or assessments then consider how these may impact those with disabilities; Consider how you would provide information and application forms, for example, if you had a candidate with a disability; Seek advice if you are unsure or you are presented with an unusual situation; I can help with all of the points above so why not give me a call and let an expert take care of it for you 023 8098 2006 or 01983 897003.
