Small businesses contribute significantly to the South African economy. It is everyone’s responsibility to create an inclusive work environment and ensure that people with disabilities are not marginalised.
The new draft QSE codes have been released and there is no score or recognition given to people with disabilities under any of the sections. As such, we strongly recommend that the DTI re-introduce recognition for people with disabilities under Employment Equity or Skills Development.
Read the draft QSE BEE codes and please send your comments to the two DTI contacts below before 14 November 2014.
