The Disability Discrimination Act of 1995 is the first British statute to address the issue of discrimination against Britain's 6.5 million disabled people. The impact of the Act is likely to be controversial and will have major ramifications for a wide range of public and private sector providers and employers.
The Act: makes all UK employers of 20 or more employees and all UK providers of goods and services legally liable for discrimination against disabled people; introduces a novel definition of discrimination, and imposes a new duty on employers and providers to make reasonable adjustments to policies and physical environments; and contains extensive provisions regulating the accessibility of public transport services, such as taxis, trains and buses.
Published in assocation with the Royal Association for Disability and Rehabilitation, this text provides a detailed explanation of the Act. The guide is aimed at lawyers working in the field of disability, personnel managers, social workers, trade union officials and anyone advising on equal opportunities and discrimination issues. The book contains a copy of the Act.
