Policy and procedures
Ensure your HR policies and procedures cover reasonable adjustments. As an employer you have a legal duty to make reasonable adjustments to any elements of the job which place a disabled person at a substantial disadvantage compared to non-disabed people.
Have policies and procedures in place for managing reasonable adjustments. Include clear guidance on hiring disabled people and supporting Access to Work grant applications. This will help your line managers and HR team provide a welcoming environment that encourages employees to discuss their needs openly, and will leave them confident to handle requests.
We're on a mission to make workplaces work for all. HR and Line Managers use our disability HR software to meet the compliance and legal requirements for their disabled employees.
