Employment Seminar: Obesity and character traits - expanding the definition of 'disability'

Recent decisions of the European Court have firmly established that obesity can amount to a “disability” for the purposes of the Equality Act 2010. But, the rulings go further and may allow employees to argue that character traits (such as a quick temper) might also amount to a disability.
In this seminar we will discuss:

  • How we have reached this point?
  • What are the limits on obesity claims?
  • How might “character” claims succeed?
  • What are the management strategies that employers can adopt?

Come along and find out the answers to these and many more questions...
