Reasonable adjustments for people with disabilities

Enrol now

Overview

Everyone has the right to participate equally at work. For some people, this requires adjustments to perform the requirements of their role. This session explores what the law says about reasonable adjustments for people with disabilities in the workplace, what employers should provide, and what is reasonable in the circumstances. The session considers preventative measures as well as responses to request for adjustments.

This session will be delivered as a webinar. It will be an interactive session that will include a presentation followed by Q and A.
