    Webinar: Filling the skills gap in the public sector: talent with disabilities

    13 February 2020

    The public sector is facing rapid changes – from shifts in the organization of work to new technologies making their way into public entities. Targeted initiatives by public employers can create and maintain a pipeline of persons with disabilities who develop new and improve existing skills to make the public sector work for all. Employment of persons with disabilities in the public service not only changes their place in society, the way society perceives persons with disabilities but also the ways people interact with the public sector. Speakers were Yazmine Laroche, Deputy Minister, Public Service Accessibility, Government of Canada; Victor Calise, Commissioner, Mayor’s Office for People with Disabilities, New York City; Martha Jackson, Assistant Commissioner Employment and Business Relations, Mayor’s Office for People with Disabilities, New York City.

    Promoting Employment Opportunities for People with Disabilities: Quota Schemes (Vol. 2)

    23 December 2019

    Employment quotas represent one of the most frequently used policy measures to promote work opportunities for persons with disabilities. Slightly over 100 countries around the world currently provide for employment quotas in their national legislation. While some countries have had employment quotas for many decades, others have introduced them recently, revised them or are planning to introduce them. There is no standard approach. Quotas vary from country to country in terms of the level of the percentage obligation, the size of company covered, whether they apply to public and private sector employers, how compliance is monitored and what measures apply in the case of non-compliance.
