Reasonable Adjustment

Reasonable Adjustment (disability only)
• A legal duty on employers to make reasonable adjustments if employment arrangements, or the workplace itself, place a disabled person at a substantial disadvantage compared to a non-disabled person.
• Reasonable adjustments have to be considered at every stage of employment.
• Discrimination occurs when an employer doesn’t do this

For example:
• Making an assumption that a person with a visual impairment can’t use computers therefore not offering her the job despite her being the best qualified for it, where providing her with a text reader and Braille keyboard (reasonable adjustments) would have enabled her to do the job.
