Dear [name of the person you are writing to],
Re: Reasonable Adjustment Request
Please accept this written request for some changes to my work arrangements. I want to be able to do my job well and making these changes will support me to do that.
[Explain how your impairment or condition affects your work. Give the facts, be specific and clear.
the adjustments you need at work before you can start working
how this would help you do your job better
if possible, explain how the employer can make these changes without disrupting the business. If you’re not sure how this might affect the business, ask if you can talk about this.]
I am aware that the Equality Act 2010 says that employers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments for disabled employees when a person is at a substantial disadvantage compared with an employee who is not disabled.
Employers must take reasonable steps to address this. These can include:
changing policies, procedures and practices
changing the physical environment
providing extra aids and services
If it is reasonable for the employer to make a change, then it should be made.
I believe that as a disabled person, under the Equality Act 2010 I am entitled to the reasonable adjustments I have requested.
I am happy to discuss this request in more detail, but I would like to receive a written response within 14 days.
