Disability two ticks symbol

What is the disability two ticks symbol?

The symbol is awarded by Jobcentre Plus to employers who have made commitments to employ, keep and IMG_1135develop the abilities of disabled staff. Being given the right to display the symbol means that we are committed to:

  1. Interview all disabled applicants who meet the essential criteria for a job vacancy and to consider them on their abilities
  2. Discuss with disabled employees, at any time but at least once a year, what both parties can do to make sure disabled employees can develop and use their abilities
  3. Make every effort when employees become disabled to make sure they stay in employment
  4. Take action to ensure that all employees develop the appropriate level of disability awareness needed to make these commitments work
  5. Review these commitments each year and assess what has been achieved, plan ways to improve on them and let employees and Jobcentre Plus know about progress and future plans.
