Printing SA and Qunu Workforce invite business owners and human resources departments to attend this informative and free webinar that will tackle the many misconceptions and multiple definitions of disability in the workplace. Despite well-defined legislation with specific percentages and incentives around the employment, training and support of people with disabilities in both the private and government sectors, compliance in South Africa is very low.

The Employment Equity Act states that at least 3% of the workforce should be employees with disabilities. The national disability prevalence rate in South Africa is around 7.5%, but it could be higher because of under- reporting. Their employment remains one of the major employment equity challenges South Africa needs to tackle.

Qunu Workforce, a Workforce Holdings company provides disability solutions and recruitment, recognises the UN International Day of Disabled Persons annually.

The global crisis of COVID-19 is deepening pre-existing inequalities, exposing the extent of exclusion and highlighting that work on disability inclusion is imperative. People with disabilities—one billion people worldwide — are one of the most excluded groups in our society and are among the hardest hit in this crisis in terms of fatalities.

The annual observance of the International Day of Disabled Persons was proclaimed in 1992 by United Nations General Assembly resolution 47/3. It aims to promote the rights and well-being of persons with disabilities in all spheres of society and development, and to increase awareness of the situation of persons with disabilities in every aspect of political, social, economic and cultural life.
