This week on program 484 of New Horizons, we hear from Graeme Innes, former Disability Discrimination Commissioner. This is an edited version of the speech he gave at the recently held Victorian Human Rights Oration in Melbourne. Talking about the right to work for people with a disability, Graeme discusses his own employment history, as well as the background to current legislation regarding employment for people with disabilities, and how each employer in Australia can help. This web version is longer than the radio version.
