County Cricket Club Awarded Disability Symbol
Employment Service has recognised the work of Durham County Cricket
Club in catering for disabled employees by awarding them the entitlement
to use the Disability Symbol.
Disability Symbol is awarded to employers who have agreed to take
action to meet five commitments regarding the employment, retention,
training and career development of disabled employees.
who use the symbol have agreed with the Employment Service that
they will take action on these five commitments:
interview all applicants with a disability who meet the minimum
criteria for a job vacancy and consider them on their abilities
ensure there is a mechanism in place to discuss, at any time,
but at least once a year, with disabled employees what you and
they can do to make sure they can develop and use their abilities
make every effort when employees become disabled to make sure
they stay in employment
take action to ensure that all employees develop the appropriate
level of disability awareness needed to make your commitments
year, to review the five commitments and what has been achieved,
to plan ways to improve on them and let employees and the Employment
Service know about progress and future plans.
Chairman, Bill Midgley, said: "As a Club we are delighted to
receive this award and be able to use the Disability Symbol. The
Club has, for a long time, recognised the needs of disabled supporters
and visitors to the Club but this shows that we are committed to
good practice in employing disabled people."
