Bagraim, Mr M to ask the Minister in the Presidency for Women, Youth and Persons with Disabilities
What steps will she take to ensure that the target of 3% set by the Minister of Employment and Labour in the past 15 years for the employment of persons with disabilities within the civil service is reached forthwith as persons with disabilities make up almost 7% of our population in the Republic?
The monitoring mandate of the Department is a function concerned with tracking and reporting on progress and regress on targets as well as providing technical support on the development of National and Provincial Strategic Plans and Annual Performance Plans. These are key enablers to systemic changes to mainstream disability considerations.
There are currently engagements between the Department of Public Service and Administration, Department of Employment and Labour as well as the Department of Women, Youth and Persons with Disabilities regarding the employment equity targeting.
Approved by Minister
Ms M Nkoana-Mashabane, MP
