T05_02 - Disability equality, fact or fiction? Future directions for workplace integration.

Globally equality legislation has promoted the rights of persons with disabilities (PWD), however, these rights remain elusive in practice. PWD are the largest underutilised labour market group and face distinct disadvantage entering and inside the labour market. Where organisations promote equality and diversity through management practices, there remains a policy to practice implementation gap and weak legislative enforcement of rights. This stream will address the ableist environment which poses challenges to disability inclusion. It will consider key debates on legislative impact, workplace integration for PWD, policy implementation gaps and specific challenges and enablers in the workplace.
