As Professor Emerita I continue to research into measuring and understanding the impact of disability on work. I support lawyers in valuing claims arising out of the impact of disability on employment.
My research interest is in the area of labour market inequality and particularly in relation to disability. I have worked with a number of external organisations such as the Low Pay Commission, the Equalities and Human Rights Commission and the Welsh Government on policy relevant projects.
Much of my research focuses on the issue of workplace inequality, and I have published widely on this issue. In collaboration with Nick Bacon, we were commissioned to undertake an assessment of the TUC’s Equality Representative initiative and were commissioned by the TUC to evaluate equal opportunities policy and practice in unionised workplaces within WERS.
My research has explored the impact of organisational practices such as work arrangements and equality practices on the employment of disabled people. I have also assessed trade union support for disabled employees and evaluated the effectiveness of Two Ticks.
