EOC Gives Legal Assistance in Disability Discrimination Case


The Equal Opportunities Commission (EOC) has today (22 August 2003) issued legal proceedings under the Disability Discrimination Ordinance (DDO), Cap. 487 in the District Court on behalf of a man who was not offered employment on the ground of his color deficiency.

Granting legal assistance in this case serves to remind employers that refusing employment to a prospective employee simply on the ground of his disability and without properly assessing his ability to carry out the inherent requirements of the job is unlawful under the DDO.
