Reasonable Accommodation Guide focussing on persons with disabilities Loading Comments…
November 25, 2015
New Zealand's Independent Monitoring Mechanism (comprising the Office of the Ombudsman, the Human Rights Commission and the Convention Coalition Monitoring Group) has published a guide on reasonable accommodation of persons with disabilities. The guide is aimed at assisting persons with disabilities to understand their rights to request reasonable accommodation. It also aims to inform employers, state sector agencies, and other persons providing services to the public, of their obligation to provide reasonable accommodation to persons with disabilities in particular circumstances.
We hope that this guide will provide useful and practical guidance on the concept of reasonable accommodation to a broad audience. We believe that the guide echoes the principles of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, and advocates for human rights and fundamental freedoms of persons with disabilities.
The guide is avaiable in pdf and Microsoft Word formats. It will also be available in easy read format shortly, and is available in Braille on request. You can read the full guide on our home page at Resources & Publications/Guides/Good Administration Guides.Back to top ↑
