Abstract: Man has a right to work and to find employment, not only because work provides him with the means of living in dignity as a human being, but also because work can be seen as an expression of his identity as a person, whilst it gives him simultaneously the feeling of being useful in the society in which he lives. The handicapped person should not be in any way deprived of the right to work. The 1969 Act on the employment of the handicapped acknowledges the right of the handicapped person to seek a job suitable for him. In fact, the law was the first step in a process towards allowing the handicapped person to take up a job as of right and not as a favour or as an act of charity.
