Social Inclusion of Victorians with a Disability
This year the Victorian government is doing an inquiry into social inclusion for people with a disability. This means you will be able to have your say about what problems you face in taking part in your community. For example, the kinds of difficulties you might have accessing buildings, going to school or getting a job. The government wants to hear about what they can do better and what changes need to be made so that people with disabilities can be included in the community. The closing date for providing your thoughts and ideas to the inquiry is 28 February.

Right to work - disability, discrimination and the law
All people have a right to work. In Australia, it is unlawful to discriminate against a person with a disability in the workplace. People with a disability have work rights including being protected from discrimination when applying for a job. They can negotiate flexible work arrangements and request reasonable adjustments in their workplace. People with a disability can contact organisations if they think they have experienced discrimination. They can make a complaint about their experience.
