This chapter presents selected findings from some recent studies of the working of the Disability Discrimination Act. It focuses on the third of a series of studies that looked at the Act's implementation through in-depth case studies of participants in cases and potential cases, although some findings are incorporated from the first two studies. The chapter notes that the DDA came into force in December 1996, and under the employment provisions (Part Two of the Act) it is unlawful to treat a disabled employee less favourably than a non-disabled one for a reason related to their disability, without justification. It also focuses on the findings that relate to the employment provisions of the DDA, although the study also covered cases which were taken under the DDA provisions relating to goods and services.

Keywords:   Disability Discrimination Act, disabled employee, non-disabled employee, goods and services
