What are my rights at work?

From October 2010, the Equality Act 2010 (EqA) replaced the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 (DDA).

Disabled people have the same level of protections under the EA as the DDA currently provides. It also brings in some new rights for disabled people and fills gaps in protection. The EqA is the law in Great Britain (Wales, England and Scotland). In Northern Ireland the DDA is still the law.
