(b) in the terms on which the employer offers that other person that employment; or
(c) by refusing or deliberately omitting to offer that other person that employment.
(2) It is unlawful for the employer, in the case of a person with a disability employed by him at an establishment in Hong Kong, to discriminate against that person-
(a) in the way he affords that person access to opportunities for promotion, transfer or training, or to any other benefits, services or facilities, or by refusing or deliberately omitting to afford that person access to them; or
(b) in the terms of employment he affords that person; or
(c) by dismissing that person, or subjecting him to any other detriment.

(4) Subsection (2) shall not apply to benefits, services or facilities of any description if the employer is concerned with the provision (for payment or not) of benefits, services or facilities of that description to the public, or to a section of the public comprising the person with a disability concerned, unless-
