The right to equality and non-discrimination in employment is afundamental human right. To be able to work without discriminationis pertinent to persons with disabilities’ full and effective participationin the society.On the basis of our enforcement experience accumulated for morethan a decade, the Equal Opportunities Commission has nowrevised the
Code of Practice on Employment under the Disability Discrimination Ordinance
to provide more detailed explanation onthe key legal concepts in the Disability Discrimination Ordinance(DDO), with abundant case illustrations to help readers understandits practical application.We hope that the Code will serve as a useful tool and reference foremployees and employers alike, enriching understanding of eachother’s rights and responsibilities under the DDO.
