Congratulations to the Department of Correctional Services employees who went to court after the department discriminated against them because they are Coloured.
In 2012, the department refused to promote them despite the fact that they were the best candidates for the job. They took the department to court and 4 years later, the constitutional court ruled that the department’s decision not to appoint or promote them constituted unfair discrimination and unfair labour practices. This will have a significant positive impact on all brown people.
It has been a long road for them, but they fought against discrimination and they won.
