With a view towards creating an inclusive and accessible environment for the disabled, it is mandatory for every establishment today under the Rights of Persons With Disabilities (RPWD) Act to draft an Equal Opportunity Policy. Establishments are duty bound to publish the same on their respective websites as well as display it at a conspicuous place in the establishment. Further, they are also required to submit this copy to the Chief Commissioner for Persons With Disabilities (CCPD) or the State Commissioner for Persons With Disabilities (SCPD).
Divyang Legal helps establishments in drafting a customized, comprehensive, compliant and effective Equal Opportunity Policy based upon the RPWD Act. We look into the nature of an establishment when we draft an equal opportunity policy and also focus on important aspects like protecting rights of disabled, providing inclusive education, employment opportunities to disabled and accessibility criterias.
The team of Divyang Legal can assist your establishment in the following manner with respect to an Equal Opportunity Policy :
- Drafting of an Equal Opportunity Policy
- Reviewing of an Equal Opportunity Policy
- Organizing campaigns for Equal Opportunity Policy Awareness
- Establishing an effective grievance redressal mechanism for addressing the grievances of disabled students/ employees
Divyang Legal also assists disabled individuals in completing the formalities/ documentation work required for obtaining the benefits of various schemes that cater to persons with disabilities.
