Submission In Response To An Application By The Department Of Social Services For An Additional Exemption From The Disability Discrimination Act 1992 To Use The Business Services Wage Assessment Tool In Australian Disability Enterprises

July 2015

PWDA’s submission reflects our positions on wage equity and employment rights within Australian Disability Enterprises (ADEs) which we have previously outlined in a number of other submissions related to this current Exemption application. These are attached for consideration in support of this submission. PWDA does not consider the granting of a further Exemption to the Business Services Wage Assessment Tool (BSWAT) to be appropriate, necessary or justified; it would also result in the continuing violation of the human rights of people with disability.
