Abstract

This report updates a previous IES study, exploring employers’ policies, practices and attitudes towards the employment of people with disabilities. The study examines employers’ perceptions of the employability of people with various disabilities, and the extent to which they are prepared to accommodate disabled employees. In recent years a number of initiatives have been introduced, aiming to overcome some of the barriers facing disabled employees when seeking employment. This report considers the influence on employers of a number of these initiatives, including the Employment Service ‘disability symbol’, Local Employer Networks, Access to Work and PACTs.
