Disability Act complaints

Complaints about unlawful discrimination against disabled people

Disabled people have the same rights and privileges as everyone else. It is unlawful to discriminate against someone because they have a disability. Where a person believes they have been discriminated against because of their disability, they can complain to the Ombudsman under the Disability Act. The Ombudsman can help the parties to reach a settlement or make recommendations after investigating a complaint. Under the Disability Act, it is possible to complain about private sector agencies as well as public ones.
