Article by:Makbool Javaid |
The TUC and the GMB have launched a new disability passport to help the 946,000 disabled people who fall out of work or switch employers each year to get the support they need. Under the scheme a model ‘reasonable adjustments employer agreement’ has been produced, for reps to agree with their employer, together with a template reasonable adjustments passport, to capture what adjustments have been put in place to eliminate barriers in the workplace.When the adjustments are agreed, the passport is signed by everyone and means disabled people don’t have to explain their requirements every time their line manager or role changes.
