27 November 2013
Acas, the conciliation and arbitration service, has published new guidance giving employers advice about how to handle small-scale redundancies, which will also be of interest to unions.

Under the Equality Act, where a provision, criterion or practice (PCP) places someone who is disabled at a substantial disadvantage compared to someone who is not disabled, employers are required to make reasonable adjustments.
