CRL Rights Commission to host nationwide seminars

We closed off with Advocate Sipho Mantula - From the CRL Rights Commission. He was speaking to us about the nationwide seminars on the laws and practices in workplace and institution of learning versus cultural and religious rights of communities that they are hosting on the 16th of November.The commission decided to host the seminars after receiving complaints from KwaZulu-Natal, Eastern Cape, Free State, North West and Western Cape concerning the dress code in the workplace and at schools, as well as the need to reasonably accommodate those who have to undergo the process of becoming traditional healers. It aims to facilitate resolution of friction on the matters at hand, engage organs of state, concerned communities and other institutions on the matters of concern, advice the organs of state on court judgements on the subject matter and propose amendments on legislation, national policy, internal policies, rules and circulars in order to address the discriminatory conduct which undermines people’s rights.
