Disability and Reasonable Accommodation   What are my obligations?

The Employment Equality Acts oblige employers to make reasonable accommodation for people with disabilities.  An employer must take ‘appropriate measures’ to meet the needs of disabled people in the workforce. This means they must make arrangements that will enable a person who has a disability to:

  • have equal opportunities when applying for work
  • be treated the same as co-workers
  • have equal opportunities for promotion
  • undertake training.
