Discrimination Act is a UK parliamentary act of 1995, which makes it
unlawful to discriminate against people in respect of their
disabilities in relation to employment, the provision of goods and
services, education and transport. It is a civil rights law. The
British Government set up the Disability Rights Commission to provide
support for the Act.
In addition to imposing obligations on employers, the Act places duties on service providers and requires reasonable adjustments to be made when providing access to goods, facilities, services and premises.
