Workplace Adjustment Plans

A Workplace Adjustment Plan is a living record of workplace adjustments agreed between a colleague and their line manager.

It provides a framework within which to discuss, agree and review any support that may be required to alleviate the impact that a disability/long term health condition is having on an individual’s ability to thrive at work.

Completion of a Workplace Adjustment Plan is voluntary and the legal duty to make reasonable adjustments will apply with or without a completed Plan.

The purpose of the Plan is to help frame conversations between individuals and their managers about workplace adjustments by:

  • Acting as a record of what adjustments are agreed.
  • Providing individuals and their line managers with a structure to use when regularly reviewing and updating information about workplace adjustments.
  • Providing a starting point for discussion when a member of staff changes jobs, is relocated, or assigned a new manager within the organisation.
  • Starting a conversation about support that may be required for less visible disabilities such as anxiety, autism, ADHD or dyslexia.
