Disability & Reasonable Adjustments
Our expert employment lawyers are specialists in helping employers understand their duties. Where a duty to make reasonable adjustments arises, the employer must effectively treat the disabled person more favourably than others in an attempt to reduce or remove barriers to that individual’s disadvantage. If you are experiencing difficulties with this please call us now for some free initial advice.
The EHRC Employment Statutory Code of Practice, which tribunals must take into account if it appears relevant, contains a non-exhaustive list of potential adjustments that employers might be required to make.
The duty to make reasonable adjustments is upon the employer; and they must consider and implement all reasonable adjustments before moving to dismiss an employee due to incapability. An employee will be successful in a claim for reasonable adjustments if they are able to establish at hearing that there was a reasonable adjustment which might have alleviated their disadvantage but which the employer did not implement or attempt to implement.
We can advise whether you have a good case to bring against your employer. Our solicitors are experts in robustly litigating disability discrimination cases and work hard to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve.
