Reasonable accommodation in EU equality law in a broader perspective

By J.E. Goldschmidt

Abstract

The Framework Directive on equal treatment in employment and occupation\ud of 2000 introduces the obligation to provide reasonable accommodations to people\ud with disabilities. The author deals with the impact and meaning of this obligation\ud from a human rights perspective. Adopting a substantive approach to equality, it has\ud been recognised that States Parties have positive obligations to bring about equality,\ud which may entail that duties are imposed on third parties. Although thus far there is\ud little case law of the European Court of Justice on the implications of the Framework\ud Directive, the judgments of other international bodies on human rights law provide\ud relevant points for interpretation
