Part 1: Have I experienced discrimination?

The Disability Discrimination Act turned 25 in 2018. It was Australia’s first federal, uniform legislation to recognise the rights of people with disability. It has since been strengthened by other national and state based legislation, and has been used by people with disability to fight individual and systemic discrimination.

This section looks at how discrimination is defined by the law and how and where it can be found to have taken place.
