Gov issues consultation on disability workforce reporting

The Disability Unit has found that whilst the employment gap for disabled people is reducing, it has remained ‘frustratingly high and enduring’.

The Disability Unit of the UK government has opened a consultation on disability workforce reporting to understand what information is currently collected by employers on disability in the workforce, the impact to business, and the behaviours it causes.

Additionally, the consultation is aimed at assessing whether there is a case to require large employers, such as those with more than 250 employees, to report information about people with disabilities in their workforce, in line with stipulated standards.
