Fandt dette på en anden blog og iler med at bringe det videre. Hvis du er blevet diskrimineret mod på det danske arbejdsmarked. er dette måske relevant for dig:
Do you believe you have you been denied a job in Denmark based on your sex, racial or ethnic origin, religion or belief, disability, age or sexual orientation? A job for which you are certain you were clearly qualified based on the job description?
If so, we would like to hear from you (in either English or Danish).
We are in the early stages of exploring legal action (strategic litigation) against the Danish government and/or specific Danish businesses for violations of Danish and European Union law against employment discrimination. Those laws are clear.
(For some quick background, check here and here and here. The operative — but by no means the only — Danish law is Act 1996/459, based on European Union Council Directive 2000/78/EC of 27 November 2000.)
Many of us who have lived here for many years have given up trying to find jobs, based on our qualifications, skills and talents. We have experienced firsthand the widespread, institutionalized and cultural discrimination against foreigners when we apply for jobs.
Some of us have lost everything, all the while wasting years trying to integrate by learning Danish — only to finally and bitterly realize that fluency in Danish doesn’t bring us one centimeter closer to employability. It’s something else.
So, enough is enough. We’ve had it with the bull**** and hypocrisy we see and hear every day in the Danish job market when we are refused jobs for which we are clearly qualified — especially when we are the most qualified of all possible candidates!
Quite simply, we are as mad as hell and we are not going to take it anymore.
We are testing the legal waters to see if we — as completely disenfranchised immigrants who want nothing more than to work for a living — might have a case against violators of the laws.
If Danish companies are violating Danish or EU law when they refuse to consider us for jobs, we want to finally hold them accountable.
If the Danish government, at any level, is not enforcing Danish law or EU law regarding employment discrimination against us, then we want to hold it accountable as well.
All we want is a fair chance to “integrate” by finding jobs that allow us to feed our families. We do not want to be on the welfare dole every month, living off the government and the taxpayers. We simply want to work.
So, if we can gather enough evidence of widespread, systemic violations of existing Danish and or EU law, we intend to raise some serious holy hell in the Danish and EU courts. We intend to expose the smoke and mirrors of lies and excuses that employment discrimination against us hides behind every day in Danish society.
Our objective is simple: force Danish companies to follow existing Danish and EU law when recruiting for new jobs. That will demand a change in the recruiting behaviour of Danish companies to give outcasts like us a fair chance at jobs for which we are qualified. We feel that this alone will level the playing field for us when looking for a job.
Again, do you believe you have you been denied a job in Denmark based on your sex, racial or ethnic origin, religion or belief, disability, age or sexual orientation? A job for which you are certain you were clearly qualified based on the job description? If so, we would like to hear from you (in either English or Danish).
If you have the right to live and work in Denmark and feel you have been discriminated against in the Danish job market, we want to hear from you.
