The Minister of Labour has issued a revised draft Code of Good Practice on the employment of people who have disabilities.

The code falls under the implementation of employment equity as people with disabilities may be discriminated against in many ways - sometimes without deliberate intention. The code states examples such as recruitment and selection processes, or the use of selection tests, or unfounded assumptions about what the disabled can do and achieve.

The code provides definitions persons with disability, and reasonable accommodation, and sets out every aspect of employment, confidentiality, recruitment testing and selection, through development and training, employment benefits, to termination.
