What does the law say about neurodiversity equality at work?

Last updated: 31 Jan 2024

The legal definition of a disabled person is someone “with a physical or mental impairment that has a substantial adverse impact” on their ability to carry out “normal” day-to-day activities.

The disability must have lasted, or will last, at least 12 months.

People with neurodivergent conditions may meet this definition of disability and be defined as disabled people for the purposes of the Equality Act 2010.
