- Why do we need Disability Discrimination Legislation?
- So what is covered by the legislation?
- Just how will the legislation deal with discrimination and what offences are likely to be included?
- Summary of offences
- Who will be protected?
- Will any conditions be automatically excluded?
- So, what are “Reasonable Adjustments”?
- Who will provide help and advice?
- You’ve mentioned courts and tribunals but could you explain their involvement a bit more?
- How long will everyone have to prepare for the legislation?
- Objective defence of indirect discrimination explained
