Creating a flexible workplace

Woman using assistive technologyBeing flexible about working conditions will allow your organisation to attract and retain people with disability.

Some people with disability may not need any changes to the workplace to be able to do their job. Some may need minor adjustments that can be easily made at minimal or no cost. Others may need special equipment or changes to the physical environment to help them do their work. Such changes are legally referred to as ‘reasonable adjustments’. See our guidelines on reasonable adjustments for more information.

If you need to make workplace changes or buy special equipment for an employee with disability, your costs may be covered by the Employment Assistance Fund.
