Employment issues paper

  • Issues papers
Publication date

Our latest issues paper is looking at the experiences of people with disability in employment. We want to understand why people with disability are less likely to be employed and have lower incomes than people without disability. The issues paper is also seeking information about people’s experiences of discrimination at work and how well specific programs designed to increase the employment of people with disability are working. The issues paper asks 9 questions to help people and organisations to provide responses. The paper is available in Easy Read, PDF and DOCX.
