As part of Ogier's commitment to diversity and inclusion in the workplace and the wider community, we're delighted to sponsor the anniversary conference of the Jersey Employment Trust to celebrate 20 years of the trust's work supporting islanders living with disabilities and/or long-term health conditions into employment.
The BBC's Security Correspondent and bestselling author, Frank Gardner OBE will be the keynote speaker at the event to be held at L'Horizon Beach Hotel on Tuesday 26 April 2022, where the Jersey Employment Trust will also present awards to employers who have gone the extra mile when supporting people who have a disability or long-term health condition in the workplace.
Senior associate Will Austin-Vautier will co-host a workshop titled: "The Covid context: disability discrimination and flexible frameworks".
During this workshop, Will will discuss Jersey's discrimination law and, in particular, consider disability discrimination in the context of Covid-19, the various protections that the law might afford and the duties for employers as well as in the wider context, such as for providers of goods and services. It will also explore any relevant tribunal decisions and questions, such as whether Covid or long-Covid might constitute a disability as defined under Jersey law.
