WHAT IS A DISABILITY?
..............................................................................................................
Who is a 'person with a disability' ?

The Employment Equity Act : "people with disabilities" means :

  • people who have a long-term or recurring physical or mental impairment
  • which substantially limits their prospects of entry into, or advancement in, employment.

Always remember - The  focus is on the effect of a disability on the person in the working environment, and not on the diagnosis of the impairment.



Why disabled people are important
..............................................................................................................
We  conduct audits to find qualifying people within a company AND potential employees for our clients

This is because we:

1.intend to ensure that disabled people are amongst the beneficiaries of affirmative action programmes, including, where possible, continuous focus on their retention, recruitment and overall enablement.

2. intend to set  a target  number of disabled employees for clients the future, and

3. want to ensure that  disabled employees feel valued and supported in reaching their full professional potential.

4. potential employees who are disabled are considered for employment vacancies.

Proving your status - What needs to be shown
..............................................................................................................
In all cases we have to be able to demonstarte that a candidate or employee  satisfies the requirements for a person with a disability.

There must be proof of :
1.a long term physical/mental/intellectual impairment OR
2. a reoccurring physical/mental/intellectual impairment AND
3. the fact that this impairment  is deterimental to their ability to find work, or progress in employment

How is this proved?

The candidate /potential employee need to submit a medical certificate clearly setting out:

1. the nature and extent of the disability
2. the extent/effect of the actual impairment in the work environment.
