Line manager guide

'Sponsored by EY'

This guide makes it easier for you to enable people who work for you, who have disabilities or long-term conditions that are not obvious, to reach their full potential by making adjustments. It will help you to:

  • Understand what non-visible disabilities are.
  • Identify how work can be done differently to maximise the potential of your disabled and non-disabled staff or those with long-term conditions.
  • Decide if an adjustment is reasonable.
  • Respond in an appropriate, sensitive and professional way when an employee tells you they have a disability or long-term condition.
  • Manage the needs and expectations of your whole team including non-disabled staff who may also benefit from the changes made.
  • Treat your disabled and non-disabled colleagues fairly while maintaining confidentiality.
  • Make sure you do not break the law.
  • Know where to go for more help and advice.

This guide is for line managers – that’s anyone who has direct managerial responsibility for one person, a team or a department.
