REACTIONS
  • Missing incentives for employers
  • Registered Disabled Persons (RDP) eligible for Disability Pension are severely disabled and most of them can only do part-time work.
  • A good number of RDP’s are illiterate = low paying jobs
  • Transport not provided by ETC for RDP’s in employment – it is only provided to RDP’s when attending a training courses.
  • Scheme applies to RDP’s who have a minor disability – not entitled to Disability Pension.
  • Scheme excludes RDP’s with intellectual disabilities

REACTIONS
  • Assessments held by ETC indicate that a good number of RDP’s receiving the Disability Pension cannot enter the Labour Market without permanent support services (Job Coaches, Personal Assistants)
  • Report does not indicate the nature of the disability of the 500 participants in the scheme (physical/intellectual/both).
  • Are these participants actively seeking employment?
  • What about RDP’s already in employment, who have forfeited their pension?

SUGGESTIONS
  • Assessments of RDP’s entitled for Pension to indicate limitations.
  • Employers should be consulted and offered indirect financial incentives – subsidised taxes, exemption from N.I. Contributions – for every RDP they employ.
  • Working group should include representatives from Employers Associations.
