Disability Discrimination Act


Over the past year or so one topic that has constantly caused a great deal of confusion for our clients and agency partners alike, has been the issue of web compliance, in particular what exactly is required to ensure compliance and moreover is it the client or agency who is ultimately responsible?

This recent article ‘The Way I See It… The True Impact of the DDA’ written by Rick Williams (CFCIPD) an acknowledged expert in this area provides a valuable insight into the client/agency relationship and offers answers to key questions such as:

  • How client marketing teams can unknowingly ‘Purchase’ DDA liability from service providers that may ultimately come back to haunt them.
  • The legal position of an Agency when supplying interactive services.

Rick’s article makes salutary reading for both client and agency and provides a degree of clarity on an often misunderstood subject.
