Manager’s Guide to creating a disability inclusive workplace

About the guide

The Manager’s Guide helps managers and supervisors effectively support employees with disability throughout the entire employment cycle; from initial recruitment to leaving employment.

Some of the topics covered in the Manager’s Guide include:

  • Disability essentials
  • Workplace adjustments
  • Creating an inclusive workplace
  • Work Health and Safety considerations
  • Establishing fair recruitment and on-boarding procedures
  • Providing career development opportunities and supporting success
  • Retaining employees who acquire disability
  • Dealing with underperformance
  • Tips for positive conversations
  • The Disability Discrimination Act 1992



The guide is available in print or HTML. The HTML version can be published on your intranet or as part of your induction procedures.

Content from the Manager’s Guide has also been adapted to produce our Disability Confident Managers eLearning course. This online training solution is an essential resource for all people leaders, no matter where they’re located across Australia.



You can choose to customise the HTML version.

This might include adding an introductory message and photo or tailoring the content for your specific needs.

The original Managers’ Guide was developed with the generous support of Telstra, IBM and Manpower. The 2nd Edition was generously supported by The Westpac Group, Ageing, Disability and Home Care (NSW), the Victorian Department of Business and Innovation and Telstra Corporation.

This 3rd edition has been updated by the Australian Network on Disability in collaboration with Members, the Australian Human Rights Commission, Thomson Geer Lawyers, managers and supervisors of people with disability and individuals with lived experience of disability.
