Employers must make reasonable adjustments to make sure workers with disabilities, or physical or mental health conditions, are not substantially disadvantaged when doing their jobs.
This applies to all workers, including trainees, apprentices, contract workers and business partners.
This guide is also available in Welsh (Cymraeg).
Reasonable adjustments include:
You can get advice on reasonable adjustments from the Disability Employment Adviser (DEA) at your local Jobcentre Plus office.
You can apply for Access to Work if you need extra help.
If you’re in Northern Ireland, find out about employment for people with disabilities or contact Access to Work (NI).
There’s more detail about employers’ obligations and how to meet them on the Equality and Human Rights Commission website.
You also need to make checks when you recruit and employ someone.
You need to register with HMRC so you can pay tax and national insurance for your employees.
Don’t include personal or financial information like your National Insurance number or credit card details.
