The Disability Discrimination Act 1995 contains important rights and duties in respect of employment and occupations; trade organizations and qualifications bodies; the provision of goods and services; the disposal and management of premises; public transport; and education.

Disability Discrimination: Law and Practice provides an authoritative and up-to-date analysis of how this important legislation operates in practice.

Disability Discrimination: Law and Practice is an invaluable reference dealing with the developing body of law regulating disability discrimination for all those advising businesses and service providers, and those representing disabled people in court or tribunal proceedings. Uniquely this work includes coverage of different implementation of the Act in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, as well as in England or across the UK.

This new edition includes coverage of recent major changes in disability discrimination law, including the Disability Discrimination Act 2005, which amends the 1995 Act in the following ways:-

  • it imposes a new duty (the disability equality duty) to promote equality in the public sector
  • previous exclusions from the DDA have now been removed including those for public bodies and the transport sector
  • the definition of ‘disability’ has been amended so that those suffering from a mental illness no longer have to demonstrate that it is ‘clinically well recognised’
  • protection under the Act is now extended to those suffering from long term illness (HIV, cancer and Multiple sclerosis) from the moment of diagnosis.
