Janine Booth is a workplace trade union representative and Co-Chair of the TUC Disabled Workers' Committee. She is autistic, and has an autistic son, and is a walking advertisement for autism in the workplace.

This book is essential reading for all those who want to challenge discrimination faced by workers with autism. Janine Booth is an active trade unionist and so her book is packed with practical advice and information that union reps, and autistic workers, need to improve working lives. Workers are better off in a trade union and this book will help make sure that this is true too for autistic workers. -- Frances O'Grady, General Secretary of the Trade Union Congress
Autism Equality in the Workplace has a new employment perspective on autism, which promises to bring out the best in everyone. This book is both a call to action and a highly practical guide to taking effective action. It's useful, entertaining, informative and easy to read. -- Dr Dinah Murray, Coming Out Asperger: Diagnosis, Disclosure and Self-Confidence and Getting IT: Using information technology to empower people with communication difficulties
This must-have resource is a revelation: full of practical tips and examples that present an exciting new approach to dealing with autism in the workplace. -- Asha Wije, Head of Employment, UnionLine
In this book, Janine Booth takes a refreshing look at the employment of autistic people through using a social model of disability to analyse how working environments can change to make the most out of autistic employees...this book contains very useful insights into common problems faced by autistic people in the workplace, as well as practical strategies for helping with them. Problems cited range from a lack of understanding from colleagues, to inappropriate support from managers. The author goes beyond the concept of reasonable adjustments however, and suggests that society needs to ask fundamental questions about how the work is organised. This book will be of interest to all who want to work toward making society, and workplaces in particular, more autism-friendly. I would highly recommend it to employers, politicians, researchers, and of course autistic people and their families. -- Damian Milton * Aspergers United *
