Disability discrimination is being treated differently, in an adverse and unfair way, on the basis of a person’s disability, or their role in caring for a person with a disability.
Some examples are:
Disability discrimination can not only cause a lot of emotional pain and hurt for families, it can affect the victim’s participation and progress in education, work, sport, recreation and social life.
Fortunately, several Australian laws prohibit disability discrimination, recognising that people with disability and their carers have equal rights to participate in all aspects of public life.
The Australian laws that prohibit disability discrimination are complex and overlapping. They comprise various pieces of discrimination, equal opportunity, human rights and fair work legislation made by the Commonwealth and State and Territory Parliaments over several decades.
Disability discrimination complaints under these laws are resolved by adminstrative law processes which are characterised by informality, efficiency and fairness. The focus is on helping the parties reach an agreement on how to practically resolve the issue.
This option may suit you if you need some expert guidance on the process, or a specific question answered, but don’t need me to hold your hand all the way.
I will advise and act on your behalf at all or some stages of the complaint resolution process. This option may suit you if you want to minimise the stress, time and energy expended in the complaints process.
