Abstract
The article examines the concept of reasonable accommodation, based on the EU Directive establishing a general framework for equal treatment in employment and occupation and the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, from the viewpoint of national legislation and implementation. Relevant legislation, its provisions and findings in the Republic of Slovenia are presented from studies carried out in 2009 and 2010, funded by the Slovenian Ministry of Labour, Family and Social Affairs and conducted at the Development Centre of Employment Rehabilitation of University Rehabilitation Institute. The studies examined the concept of reasonable accommodation in the area of employment and vocational rehabilitation.
 The article concentrates on:
- How documents (UN, European Union) provide the framework for reasonable accommodation in the area of employment/vocational rehabilitation and employment for persons with disabilities;
- How reasonable accommodation is carried out in Slovenia; and
- How existing services can be improved with attention to gaps and barriers.
 
The paper concludes with recommendations for policy and practice.
 
Keywords: reasonable accommodation, persons with disabilities, employment, vocational rehabilitation.
