All employees working in the department can request a workplace adjustment.
A workplace adjustment is a change to process, procedure or environment that enables people with disability to participate fully in all aspects of employment, have equal access to opportunities for career development and be safe in the workplace.
Our Workplace Adjustment Guideline outlines how a person with disability, or their manager, can apply and obtain a workplace adjustment at any time during their employment.
Our Workplace Adjustment Passport is a confidential record of what workplace adjustments have been agreed. This record means our people only have to tell us once, and their workplace adjustment will continue when they change roles, teams or managers.
The Department of Planning and Environment is now Disability Confident Recruiter Accredited. For the disability community, this means we have a recruitment process that's accessible. People with disability can apply for our jobs without experiencing barriers. We’re committed to being an employer of choice for the people of NSW We’re committed to being an employer of choice for the people of NSW.
