Inequality and discrimination in the workplace are some of the key elements of the legacy of Apartheid in South Africa. Persons with Disabilities have been excluded from the mainstream of society and experience difficulty in accessing fundamental rights. Legislation has in the past also contributed to the social and economic exclusion of Persons with Disabilities. Under our new democracy, the rights of the Persons with Disabilities are now protected in the Constitution. Using the Constitution as a foundation, the South African government introduced the Employment Equity Act, 1998 (the Act) to redress inequalities and discrimination in the workplace. To further ensure that the rights of Persons with Disabilities are protected in the workplace, my Department, on the advice of the Commission for Employment Equity published the Code of Good Practice on the Employment of Persons with Disabilities (Code) in 2015. The aim of the Code is to guide, educate and inform employers, employees and trade unions to understand their rights and obligations, to promote and encourage equal opportunities and fair treatment of Persons with Disabilities.
