Some publications can be downloaded in PDF format and viewed using Adobe´s free Acrobat Reader program. Others are available as word documents. To view a PDF file you must have Adobe Acrobat Reader installed on your machine. You can download this free of charge from the Adobe website.
Please note that some advisory publications published before October 2007 will not take account of changes to the Disability Discrimination Act which came into effect as a result of the DDO 2006 and employment related provisions which came into effect on 1 October 2004. While much of the content of earlier publications remains valid, users of this website should ensure that they take advice from Commission staff about the most recent legislative developments before relying on the content of any individual publication. Commission publications are intended for general guidance only and are not a complete and authoritative statement of the law.
