Abstract

This article explores how reasonable adjustments, part of UK equality legislation, are secured in the workplace. This article argues an implementation gap exists where the impact of the law is weak, despite legal mandates to aid disabled people in employment. The research points to the importance of employer’s knowledge of the effects disability as a key determinant of securing workplace adjustments.
