This chapter examines Article 27 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD), which is devoted to the right to work and employment. The right to work and employment in the disability context requires that disabled persons are not discriminated on the basis of their disability and that the workplace and conditions of work are such that allow disabled workers to offer their full potential. Accessibility and non-discrimination are therefore key elements in the implementation of Article 27.
