Your right to reasonable adjustments

You have certain rights if you have an illness or disability to protect you from potential discrimination and these rights also apply in a job interview situation.

The employer is only allowed to ask questions about your health or any disability if they are asking about any ‘reasonable adjustments’ you may require or to decide if you can do something which is an essential part of the job you are interviewing for.

A reasonable adjustment as part of the application and interview process may require the employer to provide documents in alternative formats such as larger font, braille or audio CD’s. In terms of reasonable adjustments to the job, this may be a specialist piece of equipment you require.
