At Copenhagen Business School, Denmark, August 23rd 2010 from 9.00 am to 5.30 pm.
DPOD and CBS have invited some of the world's leading experts in EU and international disability discrimination law to present their research on the concepts of disability, the obligation of non-discrimination, the employer's duty to adapt working conditions to the needs of persons with disabilities, and likely future developments in business obligations towards disabled persons.
The concept of discrimination on grounds of disability was first introduced into Danish law in 2004 when Denmark adopted legislation implementing the prohibition against disability discrimination contained in EU Directive 2000/78/EC of November 27th 2000 establishing a framework for equal treatment in employment and occupation.
On August 23rd 2009 Denmark also ratified the UN Convention on the Rights of Disabled Persons.
