    Hi I notice that lots have issues gaining a job but it's not all that easy when you have one! I work full-time and then try and recover at the weekend, there is no possibility of reducing hours as refused. Reasonable adjustments do actually mean you have to work to business needs! I have been waiting for a chair and other aids since March 21! I am not going into work till received as last time I could do anything at home because of the pain!

    That sounds awful @Shelly23 I'd strongly encourage you to contact ACAS, as refusing to make requested adjustments may constitute disability discrimination.  

    If an employer does not make reasonable adjustments for someone at work or a job applicant, it could be a type of disability discrimination called 'failure to make reasonable adjustments'. 

    If you believe this is the case, you can raise an informal or formal complaint against them. If things still aren't resolved you can make a claim at an employment tribunal. 

    Have you raised a complaint before now, or spoken to anyone in HR, if you have an HR department?
