What is a Reasonable Adjustment Plan?

The Reasonable Adjustment Plan outlines the specific accommodations and support measures agreed upon between employers and employees with disabilities or specific needs. It details the adjustments to be made to the workplace, equipment, or procedures to enable the employee to perform their job effectively and participate fully in the workplace.

This plan serves as a roadmap for implementing and monitoring reasonable adjustments, ensuring that employees receive the support they need to succeed in their roles.

It promotes inclusivity and equal opportunities in the workplace, fostering a supportive environment where all employees can contribute their best.
