Narrowing the employment gap for people with disabilities

11 November 2023

Summary

Between 2014 and 2022 in the EU27 the employment gap between people with and people without disabilities ranged, on average, from 22.7 to 21.4 percentage points.Although policy efforts are continuing to encourage an inclusive employment environment for people with disabilities under the current EU Strategy for the Rights of Persons with Disabilities 2021– 2030, several points could be strengthened to improve effective implementation.First, structured data collection is needed to make it possible to track the progress of already enacted policies and to identify challenges.Second, active engagement of the social partners would improve the implementation of employment-related policies at the workplace.Third, gender mainstreaming must be integrated into all employment inclusive measures to address the specific needs of women and men with disabilities.
