Basics of the legal framework for people with disabilities

People with disabilities are often faced with disadvantages and various difficulties / hurdles in everyday life. In order for people with disabilities to get the support they need, they need to know about the legal framework in Austria. The equality of people with disabilities is constitutionally guaranteed in Austria. An important milestone in equality law is the Disability Equality Package, which includes a ban on discrimination against people with disabilities in a wide variety of areas of life. Regardless of whether you have a disability and / or support people with disabilities, knowledge of certain legal facts can in any case authorize you to achieve law for yourself or your customers.
