Listening Understanding Assisting
Equality Act 2010
The starting point for Reasonable Adjustments is the Equality Act 2010. How can we assist employees and employers to work together within the spirit of the Act?
The Equality Act 2010 governs the law at work in relation to disability. Many of us will develop a health condition at some point in our life that impacts on our work. What we know is that around 5.7 million people of working age are likely to have protection under the Equality Act. Some employees and employers are not aware of this.
The Equality Act says that employers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments for employees who are protected by the Act. Even if an employee is not protected an employer always has to act reasonably.
The Disability Talking video will help you understand the duty to make reasonable adjustments.
We can help you work out what this means for you whether you are an employee, or an employer.
The essence of Reasonable Adjustments is to work collaboratively to find individual solutions specific to the needs of the employee and employer whenever possible.
Every case is different- we are there to assist everyone through this process using appropriate health expertise, relevant assessment tools and the best guidance available.
