ABSTRACT
The article presents interviews with Hannah Reed, senior employment rights officer of Trades Union Congress and Caroline Ellis, head of parliamentary affairs with the Disability Rights Commission. Reed asserts that the influence of the Human Rights Act (HRA) on the workplace has been limited, although there are signs that in the future, human rights may increasingly shape employment relations. Ellis explains that for disabled people, the problem is that in many cases they are not covered by the Disability Discrimination Act. She adds that wile the HRA does provide an extra layer of protection for disabled people, there are certain issues that are not as well covered as they could be, such as with medical records and reports.
