Disability as a risk factor on the access to labor market
AbstractThe study is focused on studying the issue of people with disabilities and their access on the labor market. The research attempts to highlight the experiences of people with disabilities regarding employment, coping with discrimination and how the Romanian labor market is ready to receive these people. For conducting the research we used the questionnaire and focus group methods. We interviewed a total of 60 people with disabilities of various types (sensorial, mental, and physical) and 60 employers from different sectors of the economy. Results showed that despite the many social policies launched in the last years, the percentage of people with disabilities on the labor market in Romania is still very small. There are many reasons both from employers and people with disabilities. There are also still huge degrees of discrimination and indifference.
