The difference between unfair treatment and unlawful discrimination

As advocates, we often see many people with disabilities face barriers in accessing systems and being treated unfairly in our society. But when is it simply unfair or unjust treatment, and when is it unlawful? Is it a breach of disability discrimination law? Is it a breach of other disability laws? At what point do you seek legal advice and where do you go?

In this Advance Your Advocacy Practice session, Julie Phillips, Manager of Disability Discrimination Legal Service, explores the fine line where unfair treatment tips into unlawful disability discrimination, and what you as advocates can do about it.
