Revised DDA Code of Practice on Meaning of Disability

The Secretary of State for Work and Pensions has issued revised Guidance on matters to be taken into account in determining questions relating to the definition of disability.

The new Guidance comes into force on 1st May 2006. However, the old Guidance (dating back to 1996) will continue to apply to claims arising out of acts of discrimination occurring before 1st May.

The revised Guidance can be downloaded as a pdf or a Word docment from the DRC website.
