FOI 0219 2019/20: Disabled Staff Requirements

Freedom of Information Request: 0219 2019/20

  1. The average amount of time it takes from a staff member requesting any reasonable adjustments to the point these are put in place, for example any equipment they may require like a large screen monitor or grab rails. This information should span the last 5 years (from 2014-2019) if reasonably possible.This information is not centrally collated so it is not possible to answer the question asked. There will be some reasonable adjustments which are able to be put into place immediately e.g. changing a member of staff’s working pattern to fit in with medication they have to take. There will be others where equipment has to be ordered which may take longer.
  2. The percentage of those who have additional needs/disabilities who have to take time off work waiting for reasonable adjustments to be put in place and whether this time is paid or unpaid. This information should span the last 5 years (from 2014-2019) if reasonably possible. Again, it is not possible to answer this question as this information is not kept centrally.
