Reasonable adjustments checklist

Published on: 05/02/2015

Request the employee`s consent to obtain a medical report from their GP or physician, or ask them to attend an appointment with your Occupational Health provider, to ascertain more information about their condition and whether or not it is classed as a disability under the legal definition, and what adjustments can be made. See the checklist on "Appointing a Medical Expert"

Carry out an assessment of the job to identify any aspects where the employee is placed at a substantial disadvantage, which is not minor or trivial, because of their condition.  Consider the employee`s disadvantages, compared to employees without that disability, in accommodating the physical features of the workplace as well as the requirements of the job, including working conditions.

Take into account any information provided in the medical report and, if possible, obtain further information from sources such as specialist charities.
