DISABILITY MANAGEMENT IN CONTEXT
Disability Management and compliance fall primarily within the scope of the Employment Equity Act of 1998. Because the purpose of the Act is to achieve equity in the workplace, people with disabilities are considered a designated group that needs to be represented across diverse occupational categories and levels.
Not only do organisations have to comply with the regulations of the EE Act and the submission of EE Plans and Reports, but they can also gain BBBEE points towards the BBBEE scorecard and meet their EE targets by implementing a well-planned Disability Management programme. A DM Programme gives an organisation a structured procedure to understanding, employing, and developing people with disabilities so that the workplace becomes more equitable, cooperative, inclusive, and productive.
