There are over 5.5 million people of working age with disabilities in the UK. This represents around 16% of the working population.

As this topic explains, the key statutes affecting disabled workers (and disabled visitors) are the Equality Act 2010 and the Equality Act 2010 (Disability) Regulations 2010. The regulations supplement provisions in the Equality Act 2010 that provide protection from discrimination for disabled people. They help to define who is a disabled person for the purposes of gaining the protection of the Act, and supplement provisions in the Act that require reasonable adjustments to premises to be made for disabled people.
