About the consultation

We invite you to comment on protection against disability discrimination to ensure that we introduce appropriate protection in Jersey. 

We would like you to comment on issues including:

  • how should we define ‘disability’ for the purpose of this law?
  • should any exceptions be made?
  • what provision should be made to require reasonable adjustments to premises?

The Social Security Minister will consider any comments received before finalising the draft Regulations and lodging a Proposition for States debate in 2018.

The Regulations are expected to come into force on 1 September 2018.
