Disability A–Z

Reasonable adjustments are changes that employers, educational authorities and goods and services providers need to make so that a person with disability can safely and productively do their job; take part in an education program; access a service or receive a substantial benefit from a service.

Some examples of reasonable adjustments include:

  • allowing a person with disability to have some flexibility in their working hours, such as working part-time or starting and finishing later
  • allowing a person with disability to work from home
  • moving furniture, widening a doorway or providing a ramp so that a person using a wheelchair or other mobility aid can get around comfortably and safely
  • providing Auslan interpreters for a person who is deaf or hard of hearing, or readers who will read out documents for someone with low vision or learning disability.
