The number of people with disabilities is ever increasing. However, even if the majority of them is capable of working in various jobs and positions, most companies are not willing to employ them. Although, since 2012, employers in Hungary with more than 25 employees must pay a fee/fine called rehabilitation contribution when not providing work for people with disabilities, the labour market opportunities for those living with disabilities have not improved drastically. Present paper endeavours to look into the social and cultural factors behind the lack of compliance on the employers side. The attitude towards those living with disabilities has been explored through an online questionnaire and some positive counter-examples are also explored with the help of interviewees who already have worked with co-workers with disabilities.
