David, a disabled employee at a firm of solicitors, has requested that the firm buy some computer software for him to use at work. This software enables a person with David’s disability to use a computer more effectively. The partners in the firm want advice on their obligations under the Equality Act 2010 (‘the Act’).

Under the Equality Act 2010, employers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that disabled employees are not placed at a substantial disadvantage compared to those who are not disabled. This means that the firm must take reasonable steps to provide the necessary computer software for David, as it would help him perform his job effectively and mitigate any substantial disadvantages he faces due to his disability. The Act does not require employers to make 'substantial' or 'significant' adjustments, but rather 'reasonable' ones that are proportionate and practical. 

Key Point: This question focuses on the duty of employers under the Equality Act 2010 to make reasonable adjustments for disabled employees. Understanding this requirement is crucial for ensuring compliance with anti-discrimination laws and supporting equal opportunities in the workplace.
