Direct Disability Discrimination – Urso v DWP

Direct discrimination is less favourable treatment of a person ‘because of’ a protected characteristic. In a case where the protected characteristic is disability it is generally accepted that there can be no direct discrimination if the alleged discriminator does not know that the person is disabled. In other words, disability cannot be the reason for the treatment if the alleged discriminator is unaware of the disability.
