“Reasonable adjustments”

The sorts of measures – “reasonable adjustments”-  that an employer needs to take to support a disabled employee will depend very much on the circumstances of the individual, but also on the size and nature of the organisation involved. Appropriate measures need not be extensive or complex to make a big difference.  Examples might include:

For a physically impaired employee: providing assistive computer equipment such as modifications to hardware or voice activated software; agreeing a personalised emergency evacuation procedure if they require assistance; making sure that the layout of the working environment is accessible and free from obstructions.
