Equality North East

Disability discrimination in the Equality Act 2010

The Act will deliver improved protection from discrimination for disabled people as part of strengthened and streamlined discrimination law. Amongst the new areas of protection for disabled people are:

protection from discrimination that occurs because of something connected to a person's disability ("discrimination arising from disability")
protection from discrimination that happens because of a person's association with a disabled person, or because a person is wrongly perceived to be disabled protection from disability-related harassment in respect of access to goods and services and in larger private clubs.
