Disabilities - NWU, Diversity, Equity and Human Rights


Services: Employees with Disabilities

The objectives with effective management with regard to employees with disabilities are: to provide management with a clearly outlined normative framework within which to understand and manage the integration of people with disabilities; for the NWU to acknowledge that, in dealing with people with disabilities, one is dealing with very personal and sensitive issues. While the NWU does not wish to encroach, it seeks to deepen its understanding of disabilities and plan accordingly; to establish the fundamental principle that people with disabilities will be treated fairly and reasonably accommodated.
