Published by Safety Net Team

March 23, 2022

  • A chronic condition is a health condition or disease that generally cannot be cured by medicine and persists for an extended period, often for the whole of a person’s life.
  • The Equality Act 2010 requires reasonable adjustments, such as flexible working or changes to the work or workplace, to be made for anyone who is recognised as disabled to allow them to continue or start in employment.
  • An individualised risk assessment process can help to identify possible adjustments.
  • A return-to-work process is important for employees who need time off work.
  • Employees should be able to talk to their employers about any existing or new health condition.
  • The organisation’s chronic illness policy should identify different roles and responsibilities.
