Webinar on United Nations Convention of the Rights of Persons with Disabilities

NASSCOM Foundation and Wipro jointly hosted a Webinar on UNCRPD Guidelines on 19th November 2014, from 3 pm - 4 pm.

Most employers may not be aware of the Convention for Rights of Persons with Disabilities. Some of the common practices of employers that go against the spirit of the Convention are - restricting people with certain disabilities from applying for jobs even though they may be qualified; not providing reasonable accommodation; having medical checks prior to joining; asking people to leave once they acquire disability, etc.

The objective of the webinar was to create awareness on Article 9 (Accessibility) and Article 27 (Work and Employment) and its relevance to employers. Over 30 people from different companies attended this webinar.
