Achieving Equality at Work: Reasonable Accommodation in Practice

Conference videos, photos, presentations and media coverage

On 7 October 2019, the Commission brought together 150 participants from public and private sector employers, trade union groups, people with disabilities and a number of advocacy groups to discuss reasonable accommodation in practice in the workplace.

The purpose of the event was to support employers to meet their obligations under law and make reasonable accommodation as part of everyday employment policy and practice, to ensure greater access to employment and progress in the workplace for people with disabilities.

The Employment Equality Acts oblige employers to make reasonable accommodation for people with disabilities.

The benefits of decent work include a fair income, security in the workplace, social protection for families and individuals, better prospects for personal development and social integration.
