If you are feeling stressed at work, it’s important to seek help. Talking with your manager or HR department about the parts of your job that you find stressful could get you the help you need. Working out what’s making you stressed is a good place to start.
Changes can make a big difference. These could be big or small changes to your environment, equipment or duties. If you need these changes because you’re disabled, then these are backed by the Equality Act 2010. These are called reasonable adjustments.
Reasonable adjustments to your duties, equipment or environment
The right adjustments can make your job less stressful. Employers must make reasonable adjustments for disabled employees. This can include different duties, new equipment and changing your environment. There is no set definition of what is ‘reasonable’. It depends on your condition, the job and the employer.
Your employer might not know that they must make reasonable adjustments for disabled employees. If your employer does not respond to your needs, email a more formal request.
