Reasonable adjustments policy

Each partner council in Orbis Public Law is committed to making such reasonable adjustments as may be requested in the context of the Equality Act 2010, in order to remove or reduce substantial disadvantage for disabled people receiving services. For the purposes of this policy the definition of disability follows that set out in the Equality Act 2010, s6.

This policy does not provide an exhaustive list of the reasonable adjustments that we will make for clients or other visitors. Examples of the types of adjustment that maybe made in appropriate cases are:

  • provision of information in alternative formats, such as large print
  • provision of auxiliary aids, such as induction loops
  • provision of accessible conference room facilities.

Clients may request an adjustment by contacting the allocated lawyer. All requests for reasonable adjustments will be considered on a case by case basis with HR advice if necessary. Where it is not possible to make the adjustment requested a nominated manager will discuss viable options with the client.
