On Monday 14th December some of the clinic team had the chance to take part in an employment law workshop run for us on the topic of Disability Discrimination and Reasonable Adjustments in the Workplace.
Barry Nichol and Mandy Armstrong from the employment law team at Anderson Strathern donated the session free of charge to the law clinic and all of our advisers who took part really enjoyed the morning. Disability discrimination is an area we have had enquiries about in the past and so to be able to hear from two experienced practitioners currently working in that field on how to handle the cases was a great opportunity. Both were excellent speakers and laid out brilliantly for the team the main areas of the law, important cases and talked us through how to manage a case from start to finish.
Everyone who was in the session felt they took a lot away from it and we are extremely grateful to Barry and Mandy for giving up their time to come through from Edinburgh and speak to us.
We are constantly trying to improve our service and this will hopefully be the first of many sessions with firms and organisations to ensure the advisers in the clinic are able to take on a varied range of cases and get the desired result for our clients.
