Description:
Modern Human Resource Management demands the promotion of an equality agenda. An integral component of any equality agenda is the promotion of issues relevant to people with disabilities. The Government established the Commission on the Status of People with Disabilities to ostensibly advise on practical measures to ensure that people with disability can exercise their rights to participate in economic, social and cultural life. Employment was identified as a major factor in the lives of people with disability in achieving economic and social independence. National agreements since the early 1990's include commitments to address disability issues including employment. More recently Partnership 2000 and the Programme for Prosperity and Fairness give commitments to address issues relevant to the employment of people with disabilities including a target of 3% employment levels in the public service. Measures to achieve the target include the preparation and active promotion of Codes of Practice on the Employment of People with Disabilities and the identification of suitable employment opportunities within the public service.
