What are the employment rights of people with intellectual disability?

The UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities obligates nations to recognise the right of persons with disabilities to work, on an equal basis with others. It states that the right of persons with disabilities to work includes the right to the opportunity to gain a living by work freely chosen or accepted in a labour market and work environment that is open, inclusive and accessible.
