Disability discrimination is when a person with a disability is treated less favourably than a person without the disability in the same or similar circumstances.

For example, it would be ‘direct disability discrimination‘ if a nightclub or restaurant refused a person entry because they are blind and have a guide dog. It is also disability discrimination when there is a rule or policy that is the same for everyone but has an unfair effect on people with a particular disability. This is called ‘indirect discrimination’. For example, it may be indirect disability discrimination if the only way to enter a public building is by a set of stairs because people with disabilities who use wheelchairs would be unable to enter the building.

Alchin Consulting offers assistance to individuals and organisations to identify, manage and resolve issues of discrimination in a respectful time and cost effective way.
