The Disability Discrimination Act 1992 (DDA) came into effect in March 1993. The Act makes it unlawful to discriminate against people with a disability in many areas of public life. The purpose of the Act was to 'assist people with disabilities to exercise their rights as Australian citizens'(3) in recognition that 'people with disabilities are entitled to the same rights and same opportunities as all other Australian citizens'. The objects of the Act were to 'eliminate as far as possible discrimination against person with a disability in areas of public life, to ensure as far as practicable that people with disabilities have the same rights to equality before the law as other citizens, and to promote recognition and acceptance within the community of the principle that people with disabilities have the same fundamental rights as their fellow citizens'(4).
