Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and I will be assisting you with your question today. What was the adjustment in question?
It is very unlikely that disciplinary action can be taken for failure to adhere to a reasonable adjustment. Such adjustments are there to help you with your condition and it is you who decides in the end what would be helpful to you. The employer may offer various options for adjustments but not all may actually be suitable. So if you do not personally believe that the proposed adjustment will be beneficial to you, even if the employer does, it is your opinion which should matter the most as you are the one who is going to potentially benefit so if you do not think it is going to be beneficial you do not have to take it. Disciplining you as a result can be discriminatory conduct by the employer.
