This chapter examines disability discrimination law under the Equality Act 2010 (EA). It first considers the historical context and the possible conceptual approaches to the protection of disabled workers. It then addresses the definition of ‘disability’ in section 6 of the EA followed by analyses of the employer’s duty to make reasonable adjustments and the ‘discrimination arising from disability’ concepts. Finally, it presents some comments and observations on the current state of disability discrimination law in general, taking into account the recent introduction of the EA and European developments.
