Not all disability discrimination in the workplace is unlawful. To be unlawful, the discrimination must meet certain requirements:
- your disability or health condition must be covered by the legal definition of ‘disability’ or ‘impairment’
- you must have experienced ‘direct’ or ‘indirect’ discrimination, or suffered ‘adverse action’ by your employer
- your workplace situation must be covered.
