You probably saw the Fujitsu “good news” story about Duncan Tait signing up signing the company up to the Employers’ Forum on Disability “Accessible Technology Charter”.
You are covered by the disability provisions of the Equality Act if you have a physical or mental impairment which has a substantial and long-term adverse effect on your ability to carry out normal day-to-day activities. This means that most of us are likely to be covered at some stage in our lives.
A central aspect of the legislation is the right to request “reasonable adjustments” to remove barriers to participation for people with disabilities. The adjustments could by physical (e.g. providing alternative equipment) or to processes (e.g. sickness management) or practices (e.g. working hours).
You may find the commitments in the charter helpful if you are seeking reasonable adjustments.
