This presentation explores the relationship between disability discrimination law and quota laws or schemes in Member States of the European Union. Quota schemes oblige employers to employ a certain percentage of registered people with disabilities. 21 of the 28 Member States have such schemes in place. In addition, all EU Member States prohibit disability discrimination in the field of employment as a result of the EU Employment Equality Directive (2000/78). As well as reflecting on the relationship between these two measures in general, the presentation will also consider if that relationship seems to be different in common law compared to civil law jurisdictions in the EU.

This event is part of the Labour Law Seminar Series run by the Centre for Employment and Labour Relations Law.
