Anti-Discrimination Law and ‘reasonable adjustments’

Now that the Anti-Discrimination Legislation is in force, Employment & Social Security is publishing details of the duty on employers to make ‘reasonable adjustments’ for disabled employees.

It accepts that there is a limit where such adjustments would represent a ‘disproportionate burde’n on the duty-holder (i.e. employer).

Further detail on what constitutes a ‘reasonable adjustment’ and a ‘disproportionate burden’ can be found on the States’ website in the section Chapter 3: Duty to make reasonable adjustments.
