The study is critically analysing the current legal framework in Malawi in so far as the right to equality and
non-discrimination in the work place and the right to work for people with physical disabilities (PWPDs) is concerned. The paper will assess whether Malawi’s legal framework effectively protects the right to equality and non-discrimination in the work place for PWPDs in conformity with international standards. Finally, the paper will, in the event that Malawi’s legal framework does not conform to international standards, offer suggestions on how it can
be reformed to comply with international standards, especially the Convention on the Rights of People With Disabilities
