Disability A–Z

The Disability Discrimination Act 1992 (DDA) was an act passed by the Parliament of Australia in 1992. It makes discrimination against people with disabilities − in employment, education, publicly available premises, provision of goods and services, accommodation, clubs and associations, and other contexts − illegal. This discrimination includes not making reasonable adjustments for the person.
