is made up of two components. The first is the type of behaviour that is unlawful. The second is what will happen to the person if they refuse to go along with the unlawful behaviour.
Disabilty Harassment-as outlined in the Federal Disability Discrimination Act 1992. It is not defined in the Act but it is generally understood to consist of offensive, abusive, threatening or exclusive behaviour in relation to a person's disability.
