The Disability Rights Commission estimates that here are 10 million people in Britain who have rights under the Disability Discrimination Act.
Many disabled people remain unaware of the rights, assistance and protection that the 1995 Disability Discrimination Act give them.
The DDA makes it unlawful for an employer to treat a disabled employee less favourably for a reason relating to their disability. Employers also have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to working arrangements and premises, to ensure that disabled people are not put at a substantial disadvantage.
