Persons with disabilities

 

The functioning of each person depends on the way in which it is enabled to act and engage in activities, i.e. from what is available to it and at its disposal to carry out these activities.

 

Persons with inborn or acquired disability due to social and other types of obstacles have a reduced ability to engage in activities of society at the same level with others, regardless of whether they can realize them using technical aids or support services.

 

The employer is obliged to provide disabled workers with access to the workplace and appropriate working conditions, adaptation of infrastructure and space, methods of use of equipment and other specific needs in accordance with the needs of the employed disabled person and the functions that should also be performed.
