It considers: - The impact the EU Law has on the national level - The content of the EU law - Additional sources of information ã The EU Law is the Employment Equality Directive –  Directive 2000/78.  Faculty of Law 1. Impact of the Law (1) ã This law requires all Member States to prohibit discrimination on the ground of disability with regard to employment and vocational training. ã EU laws also cover discrimination on other grounds. ã The directive required all Member States to either introduce disability non-discrimination laws for the first time, or to strengthen their existing laws.  Faculty of Law 1. Impact of the Law (2) ã Many Member States have extended protection to cover other areas, like access to goods and services. ã National laws in the Member States are not identical –  all must, as a minimum prohibit disability discrimination with regard to employment and vocational training, but do not have to do this is exactly the same way. ã Individuals gain rights directly through the national laws –  which are themselves based on the EU directive.
