The Employment Equality Acts 1988 and 2004 prohibit discrimination in the workplace on nine grounds, which include disability. It requires employers to make reasonable
accommodations for people with disabilities to access employment, progress their careers and access training, unless this would impose a disproportionate burden on the employer.
This project analyses a multinational organisation in relation to Equality and Diversity,with particular emphasis on disability. This analysis was undertaken in a healthcare
company based in Longford called Abbott Diagnostics Division (a member of an American Corporation called Abbott Laboratories). The company will bereferred throughout this document going forward as Abbott, which stands for Abbott Diagnostics Division Longford.
