New Anti-Discimination Code

Subscribers will be aware that Part III of the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 comes into force on 1st October 2004. Part III requires businesses, and other providers of services, to take reasonable steps to (inter alia) enable access to their premises by disabled persons.

Today (Monday) the Disability Rights Commission, together with the Dept. for Education and Employment, has launched a 3-month consultation period on the provisions of the draft Code and other guidance documents.

Copies of the Consultation Paper, draft Code of Practice, draft Regulations and other related documents can be obtained by replying to this Email. The documents are fairly large - approximately 880K in total, and are in Word for Windows format.




Instruct me via the internet in non-complex employment law matters for £100 (+VAT).

Guaranteed 3-hour response or no charge.

The service is available for non-complex employment matters only. If the instructions are likely to take me longer than one hour, I will not accept them on the £100 fixed-fee basis. In such a case, I will contact you with an estimate of fees and you may decide whether to proceed.

The service is subject to terms and conditions (set out on my website) and is available to solicitors only.
