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.
