If you’re having difficulties at work because of hearing loss, it’s not something you have to put up with. There’s a wide range of great products and communication support that can help – and there are simple things that your colleagues can do to make communication easier. What’s more, employers have a legal obligation to provide support and adjustments, to make sure you get the help you’re entitled to.
The first step to getting the right support is telling your employer about your hearing loss and the difficulties that you’re having. We’ve produced this information to help you understand your rights in the workplace and the different types of support available, so that you can talk to your employer with confidence – and know what to do if you don’t get the support you need.
We’ve also produced information for employers, so they understand their obligations to support their employees with hearing loss – and the benefits of doing so – and know where to go for support and information.
