Résumé/Citation: The objects of this Act are to eliminate discrimination against persons on the grounds of disability in areas of work, accomodation, education, access to premises, clubs and sport, and the provision of goods, facilities, services and land. The intention is also to prohibit discrimination under existing laws and the administration of Commonwealth laws and programmes, to ensure that persons with disabilities have the same rights to equality before the law as the rest of the community, and to promote the recognition and acceptance within the community of the principle that persons with disabilities have the same fundamental rights as the rest of the community. Part 2 concerns the prohibition of disability discrimination; Part 3 provides for "action plans" to eliminate such discrimination; Part 4 deals with inquiries and civil proceedings; Part 5 specifies additional offences under the Act; and Part 6 provides for the appointment of a disability discrimination commissioner.
