Abstract

The Danish policy towards work-disabled persons comprise contradictory forces. The state seeks to enhance labour market integration of work-disabled persons through vocational rehabilitation. However lax job protection legislation makes it easy for employers to dismiss sick-listed employees. We find that the process of returning to work with the old employer is different from the process of returning to work with a new employer. Furthermore, we find that separation has only limited direct effect on returning to work, but effectively separates employees with low and high employability. Participation in educational measures seems not significantly to help the sick-listed back to work.
