In discrimination law, an ‘associate’ of a person with disability is a person with whom the person with disability has regular contact with, such as a close family member, a person with whom they live; a carer or another person with whom they are in a business, sporting or recreational relationship. Associates may sometimes be unlawfully discriminated against because of their relationship with a person with disability and is therefore entitled to complain of disability discrimination.
