4. Other legislation

The Disability Discrimination Act 1992 (Cth) and the Equal Opportunity Act 1984 (SA) make disability discrimination unlawful and promote equal rights, opportunities and access for people living with disability.

Disability discrimination happens when people living with disability are treated less fairly than people without disability and the discriminator fails to make reasonable adjustments to rectify the situation. It also occurs when people are treated less fairly because they are relatives, friends, carers, co-workers or associates of a person with disability.
