Disability Discrimination Ordinance – Code of Practice on Employment 2011

August, 2011

 

The Equal Opportunities Commission ("EOC") introduced an updated Code of Practice on Employment on 3 June 2011.

 

In view of the enforcement experience accumulated by the EOC, it has revised this updated Code of Practice to give more detailed explanations on the key legal concepts in the Disability Discrimination Ordinance ("DDO") and to provide real case illustrations in order to help readers understand the practical application of the DDO. This Code of Practice also includes reference to the Minimum Wage Ordinance (which has become effective since 1 May 2011) regarding the assessment of the statutory minimum wage applicable to persons with disability.
