PUBLIC CONSULTATION ON THE REASONABLE ACCOMMODATION FUND GRANTS

 

The government wants to make sure that people with disabilities who want and are able to work are supported and enabled to do so.

To do this, the government wants to get your views on how to improve how the ‘Reasonable Accommodation Fund’ grants operate. Please send us your views by 5pm Friday 29 April.

Reasonable accommodations promote equality by removing barriers in the workplace. This enables people with disabilities to participate and achieve their full potential at work.

Under the Employment Equality Acts 1998-2015, employers must provide reasonable accommodations to both:

  • employment candidates with disabilities
  • employees with disabilities

Employers must offer reasonable accommodations unless introducing reasonable accommodations would be a disproportionate burden.
