Hi all,

We have purchased a third party application which our company is using as a
means to train staff. It is essentially a step-by-step tutor showing you
how to accomplish set tasks. After doing some testing, we found out that it
is totally inacessible, but we only got a peak just now and they are about
to roll it out. Apparently, they can't change the timeframe.

So anyway, their solution was that in the general communications going out
to end users, they would say (NOT IN THESE WORDS) 'for those who are unable
to undertake the training for certain reasons, should contact the training
team for one-on-one help.'

My question is, can this be seen as being discriminatory? Chaals you might
be the best person to know about Australian law in this area, are we in any
danger here? especially seeing we are a big company with lots of
employees!!!

Does anyone else have any other possible suggestions in this case? Ones
that may not be as dangerous;)

Regards,
Kieran.
