Dutch companies scared to employ disabled people
About 40,000 disabled people remain jobless because organisations fear they will demand too much attention if employed.18 September 2008
THE NETHERLANDS -- A survey by a Dutch market research company has revealed that 40,000 young disabled people remain unemployed because the business community is too scared to take them on.
Market research company TNS NIPO says many organisations fear that employing a disabled person will take up too much of their time and attention. But that is completely dependent upon the individual, says TNS NIPO.
The research company has now set up a website where companies can discuss with each other what is involved in offering a job to someone with a disability.
