European Commission Non Discrimination legislation proposal fails to protect disabled people
EDF President considered the proposed directive unclear, leaving room for interpretation. He stressed that the proposal will require substantial changes in order to reach its objectives and to protect disabled people from discrimination and to respond to the demands of the over 1.3 million European citizens who supported EDF One Million for Disability Campaign with their signatures.
Open letter to José Manuel Barroso, President of the European Commission
Following the decision of the College of Commissioners on 11 June 2008 on the future European non discrimination legislation, EDF expresses serious concerns that the decision to protect all discriminated groups through a single directive may not respond to the needs of a group as diverse as persons with disabilities.
