I think the question is answered by asking against whom a claim might be brought.

Is a limited company involved. If so is it selfemployment?

Sorry this boarder on a tax question, would the taxman have an issues with expenditure for a reasonable adjustment? There could never be a court claim in this instance, unless you sued yourself.

It appears to be a legitimate business expense, and I am sure you can justify it as such.

Why should it not be just a business expense? I am not clear how it comes under reasonable adjustment, or that it needs to.

Say for example an office was on a hill and the disabled person couldn't always get to the office in the winter months because of ice. So for the winter period the office needed to be more accessible, so they'd rent another office in a better location just for this purpose? Not sure thats a great example, but its generally what I mean :)

I'd suggest in that case, the reasonable adjustment would be to allow the person to work from home.

Does Alex have to put his request to himself in writing? Is there a time limit for him to respond to his request?

Perhaps he should hold a meeting with himself to discuss his request, at which he will of course be entitled to accompany himself as a companion.

Would he have a right of appeal?
