Autism Equality in the Workplace: removing barriers and challenging discrimination
Published in April 2016, this is an essential handbook for trade unionists and others who are campaigning in support of autistic workers and for autism-friendly workplaces. With a foreword by Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell MP, it provides practical advice to tackle discrimination in a society where only 15% of autistic adults have full-time employment.
