Workplace Adjustment Toolkit


As an employer we have a duty under the Equality Act 2010 to make reasonable adjustments where a disabled member of staff (or job applicant) is put at a substantial disadvantage compared to others, by the application of a “provision, criteria or practice”. We believe that the requirements of the Equality Act are a minimum requirement.

Our approach is to say yes to requests unless there is genuine business need to say no. We expect our managers to work proactively and collaboratively with disabled staff to put in place workplace adjustments. Effective workplace adjustments enable our disabled staff to fulfil their potential and benefits the University.

This toolkit provides more guidance on workplace adjustments, how to arrange, review and change them and signposts staff and managers to sources of information and guidance.
