Disability Discrimination: Law and Litigation
A clear and accessible text which provides those advising or acting on the implications of the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 as it is working out in practice. Examining the Act itself systematically, Damian McCarthy considers the effect of case law to provide a practical analysis of where the Act is working and where it is not. The implications of the Human Rights Act on disability claims are considered. This guide should provide readers with a text that is more up to date and clearer than other available works, at a time when claims are likely to rise and their success rate increase.
