Reasonable adjustments

Postby Russell » Fri Apr 06, 2018 6:52 pm

If you're self employed does the reasonable adjustment law still apply? So could the cost of a reasonable adjustment be charged to your own company?

I'm 99% sure the answer to this must be yes but wanted to check.

In a decent society, there should be help available to provide reasonable adjustments for the disabled.

In fact over the last generation disability has become handled much better. I had a skiing accident and was on crutches for a while, it was great especially at airports. Treated like royalty.

Then is that not the answer to your question?

If the OP's employer does not provide a reasonable adjustment, the OP may be able to bring a Tribunal claim.

Cheers But what happens when you are the employer? The same rules apply?

If an employer does not provide a reasonable adjustment to an employee, the employee may be able to bring a Tribunal claim.
