Disability, Discrimination, and Equal Opportunities: A Comparative Study of the Employment Rights of Disabled Persons
This text, part of the Studies in Labour and Social Law series, examines the role that law might play in opposing disability discrimination in the labour market and in promoting the employment rights of disabled workers - an area much neglected in legal literature and employment law. It explores the meaning of disability, the demography, nature and experience of disability, and evaluates the evidence of employment discrimination against disabled persons and their position in the labour market. It also sets out the existing law on disabled employment rights in Britain and compares it with similar situations in the European Union, North America and Australia.
