49I   Industrial organisations
(1)  It is unlawful for an industrial organisation to discriminate against a person who is not a member of the industrial organisation on the ground of disability:
(a)  by refusing or failing to accept his or her application for membership, or
(b)  in the terms on which it is prepared to admit him or her to membership.
(2)  It is unlawful for an industrial organisation to discriminate against a person who is a member of the industrial organisation on the ground of disability:
(a)  by denying him or her access, or limiting his or her access, to any benefit provided by the industrial organisation, or
(b)  by depriving him or her of membership or varying the terms of his or her membership, or
(c)  by subjecting him or her to any other detriment.
(3)  Nothing in subsection (2) (a) renders it unlawful to discriminate against a person on the ground of disability where, because of the person’s disability, the person requires the benefit to be provided in a special manner and the benefit cannot be provided in that manner by the industrial organisation without unjustifiable hardship to it.
