This Pocket Book offers senior managers, trainers, supervisors, line managers, HR personnel, employees and employee/trade union representatives an insight into the legal requirement and value in providing reasonable adjustments in the workplace, how they can be managed and how to reduce the chance of future discrimination.

Employers should have effective procedures to meet the needs of employees with disabilities, encouraging employees to request reasonable adjustments will enable them to continue working and reach their full capability.
