Abstract

This paper briefly canvasses some issues that surround the employment of workers with disabilities in the new industrial environment under the Employment Contracts Act. The ability of employees with disabilities to negotiate contracts from a less than comparable position of strength is discussed. The underlying reasons for this imbalance in power is analyzed. The use of bargaining agents as provided for under the Act is discussed as one mechanism which may assist in addressing this imbalance in power.
