Reasonable adjustments

If an employer does not make reasonable adjustments

If the employer believes a suggested adjustment is unreasonable, they should talk with the employee or job applicant and:

  • explain why they think the adjustment is not possible
  • try and find another option

If an employer does not make reasonable adjustments for an employee or job applicant with a disability, it counts as discrimination under the law.

If someone feels they've been discriminated against

If someone thinks they've been discriminated against, they could make an informal or formal complaint to their employer.

If the problem is not resolved, they could consider making a claim to an employment tribunal.
