An interesting new study is being conducted by Hannah Saunders at Durham University, who is looking into whether workplace laws in the UK are effective at achieving equality for people with a visible difference.
The aim of the research is to:
- understand better the experiences of people with a visible difference in relation to the job market and workplace in the UK;
- analyse whether the law goes far enough to promote equality for people with a visible difference; and
- suggest how, if needed, the equality rights of people with a visible difference can be better upheld.
Hannah Saunders, FHEA, is looking for volunteers aged 18 or over with a visible difference who are willing to be interviewed either in their own home (subject to location) or by telephone about their experiences of work and job market equality. It is estimated that the interview would take between 1 and 2 hours at a time to suit you. Participation is entirely voluntary and unpaid. If you may be willing to take part, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, including your name, address and a phone number where we can reach you. We will then send you further information about the research and what’s involved. Thank you very much in advance for your consideration.
