DPAC Launches Survey Into Reasonable Adjustments For Disabled Workers!
The Public Interest Research Unit (a small registered charity) is producing a report for Disabled People Against Cuts (DPAC) to feed into the House of Lords Equality Act Inquiry. Information on your experiences with reasonable adjustment being made, or not being made, would be very welcome, as would any suggestions you have for improvements to the Equality Act or to employer practice towards disabled workers.
Any information you provide will be anonymised, so as to hide your identity and the identity of the employer. You do not need to give your name. If you do give your name, it will not appear anywhere in the research. The anonymised research findings will be included in a published report.
What is the reasonable adjustments duty? In essence, an employer has a duty to make reasonable adjustments to working arrangements or the working environment when disabled workers (or disabled job applicants) are placed at a substantial disadvantage. The duty is now under the Equality Act and was under the Disability Discrimination Act.
