27 Jan 2015
The European Parliament recently published joint research by IES and Matrix, on the costs and returns of investments for reasonable accommodation for people with disabilities.
The aim of the study was to provide Members of the Committee on Employment and Social Affairs of the European Parliament with an up-to-date, comprehensive picture of the latest developments on costs and returns of investment for reasonable accommodation for people with disabilities in terms of employment, public institutions, services and products, as well as for sheltered workshops.
The report provides an overview of the policy measures in place to encourage and support the employment of people with disabilities and in particular: sheltered workshops; reasonable accommodations; alternative labour market policies; and Universal Design.
