Proposed changes

This section of the site summarises some proposed or likely changes to the disability discrimination law. The proposed changes do not necessarily apply to Northern Ireland.


This is the biggest issue. Currently UK discrimination law must comply with European Union (EU) legislation. However after the UK leaves the EU, UK law may not need to.

There are also big uncertainties on how Brexit will affect the use of EU directives and EU court decisions in interpreting the Equality Act (and much other UK legislation).

See Brexit and Equality Act 2010.
