Nothing so far on “DSE Accessibility, Diversity & Inclusion” ergonomic adjustments, adaptations, customisation or optimisation for the 58% of operators suffering presenteeism and carrying-on regardless of eye-strain, CVS or Screen Fatigue?

The US DSE operators working from home have started putting in their accessibility claim letters and looks like the scale sufficient for a class action so, will have to rely on UK operators just carrying-on regardless of self-harming, NDA’s and out of court settlements.
