The Workplace and Epilepsy: A guide for NZ workers and employers
Thursday, 27 October 2016
This guide aims to provide an easy to read introduction to the legal issues relating to epilepsy and employment from a New Zealand context. It includes information for employees with epilepsy and employers on their rights and responsibilities within the workplace.
While this booklet focuses on legal rights and remedies, this is not to suggest that these are the only remedies to workers or employers dealing with epilepsy in the work place. However, an understanding of legal rights and responsibilities encourages a more informed and fair workplace.
