Abstract:
Despite international and national guarantees of equal rights, there remains a great deal to be done to achieve global employment equality for individuals with disabilities. In OECD countries, the employment rate of persons with disabilities was just over 40%, compared to 75% for persons without a disability; in many low- and middle-income countries, the employment rates are even lower. There are numerous reasons why persons with disabilities fare poorly in the labor market. This is the first book to document what can be done to improve this imbalance. Chapters in this volume address all relevant facets of this topic and include:

- Extensive examination of the factors contributing to inequitable access to work among persons with disability
- Analysis of the economic benefits of increasing employment equity
- Successful employment strategies at every stage of a worker's career
- Evidence-based recommendations and case studies of innovative policies and programs around the world.
