Overview

The Disability Ombudsman is responsible for providing advice and support to people who feel discriminated against in the meaning of the Federal Disability Equality Act or the Federal Disability Employment Act. To this end, the Disability Ombudsman holds consultation days throughout Austria and is independent and not subject to directives in his activity. If necessary, the Disability Ombudsman advises and supports people with disabilities during conciliation proceedings, and if necessary can also take part in them as a trusted third party. The Disability Ombudsman is also a member of the Federal Disability Advisory Board, which advises the Minister of Labour, Social Affairs and Consumer Protection on all important issues concerning people with disabilities.
