Disclosure Framework (PDF)
The Disclosure Framework is based on the learning of AHEAD over the last 6 years, particularly the findings of the WAM Programme placement evaluations, which involved research into the topic of disclosure with over 100 graduates with disabilities and 100 employer staff (managers and HR) in public and private sector employers. It is this action-based learning which underpins the content in the Framework. The aim of the Framework is to portray the complexity of disclosure of disability in the workplace from both the individual and organizational perspective. It provides guidelines for employers on how they might influence their own work environments and practices so that they acknowledge their responsibilities within the disclosure process and focus on the relevant disability related information at the relevant time.
