We need to talk: Acas publishes first guide on mental illness at work
The Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service (Acas) has published its first guide on tackling mental illness at work which it describes as "the last taboo in business".
The guide provides very useful practical guidance as well as outlining an employer’s legal responsibilities under the Equality Act 2010 to make reasonable adjustments.
The guide is available from the ACAS website at the following link: http://www.acas.org.uk/media/pdf/j/i/Promoting_positive_mental_health_at_work_JAN_2012.pdf
