Attention for the Headquarters of AUNGOs!

05 June 2013

 "Confederation of NGOs of People with Disabilities of Ukraine" considered the draft of the Law of Ukraine (№ 2116 from 28.01.2013) "On Amending Certain Laws of Ukraine regarding deregulation of enterprises, improving conditions for small and medium enterprises", which was submitted by MP Ukraine A.V. Kuzhel.

Confederation disagrees with further consideration of this project, namely: changes made to articles 19 and 20 of the Law of Ukraine "On Principles of Social Protection of the People with Disabilities of Ukraine" (paragraph 4 of the draft) and deemed to discriminate against rights of people with disabilities under the Convention on professional rehabilitation and employment of the people with disabilities № 159. Confederation recommends leaving the current legislative framework governing the rights of the disabled, unchanged.

Confederation offers do not waste administrative resources for the adoption and implementation of the new Act, namely:

rest the of Article 19 and 20 of the Law of Ukraine "On Principles of Social Protection of the People with Disabilities in Ukraine", and do not support further consideration of the proposal.

Note:

In the future, according to the Confederation, the changes will have a negative impact on employment of people with disabilities in companies violating the legal right to work.

Therefore Confederation encourages representatives of non-governmental organizations of people with disabilities to participate in the discussion of the project and express their protest on the consideration of this bill by sending a letter to the Cabinet of Ministers, the Parliament and the Administration of the President of Ukraine.
