Abstract

Part 5 of the Disability Act 2005 ("the Act") sets out the obligations on public service bodies with regard to the employment of people with disabilities.\ud There are three interlinked requirements which public bodies must fulfill:\ud •\ud Public bodies must, insofar as practicable, take all reasonable measures to promote and support their employment of people with disabilities.\ud •\ud Public bodies shall ensure, unless there are good reasons for not doing so, that at least 3% of their employees are people with disabilities.\ud •\ud Public bodies must report on an annual basis to a statutory monitoring committee in their parent Department on the number of people with disabilities in their employment and the measures they are taking to promote and support their employment. The monitoring committees in turn submit their reports on such compliance to the Minister of their parent Department and to the National Disability Authority (NDA)
