Disability wage test ‘discriminatory’  February 13, 2013 – 11:00 pm
Business Savvy Risk Managment

The Federal Government has suspended the ‘competency’ test used to determine disabled workers’ wages after a Full Court of the Federal Court found it was discriminatory.

A Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs (FaHCSIA) spokesperson told HRR the assessments had been suspended while the government applied to the High Court seeking leave to appeal against the decision.

Two intellectually and physically disabled men, Gordon Prior and Michael Nojin, successfully argued they were discriminated against. Both filed claims in the Federal Court in February 2009 alleging unlawful discrimination under the Disability Discrimination Act 1992. Victoria-based Prior is legally blind and has a mild-to-moderate intellectual disability. Stawell Intertwine Services Inc, an Australian Disability Enterprise (ADE), employed him on less than $3 an hour to maintain gardens. NSW-based Nojin has cerebral palsy, a moderate intellectual disability and epilepsy. He earned $1.85 an hour destroying documents for ADE Coffs Harbour Challenge Inc.

The employers used the business services wage assessment tool (BSWAT), which measures disabled workers’ competency and productivity, to determine their pay. Prior and Nojin argued the tool compared disabled people without intellectual disabilities to those with intellectual disabilities, meaning those with intellectual disabilities would always recover less. They claimed their employers discriminated against them because of their intellectual disability, and denied or limited their access to certain employment benefits.

New marketing company- conventions?

I have a new marketing company that i'm starting. It will essentially be a unique way for community businesses to market their products door to door.
My main question is the finding of clients. I have a few thoughts on how to gain new clients, however, I was curious to learn more about conventions. For example, I went to the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas recently and saw all the new gadgets that people/businesses were looking to sell to other businesses. I'm looking for the same type of convention, to essentially showcase my new means of marketing for businesses in the community that want better ways to market their product or service then direct mail or passing out fliers.
Any suggestions or website links would be greatly appreciated.
