Item description for Rehabilitation of Partially Disabled People: An International Perspective by Saskia Klossc, Stella Don Uijl, Tinoke Bahlmann, Joop Schippers, Tineke Bahlmann, Saskia Klosse & Stella den Uijl...
Handicapped and partly disabled workers constitute a major problem from a labour market policy point of view. In many European countries governments are puzzled by the question how to favour rehabilitation of these workers. Their physical or mental condition does not allow them to enter just every possible job available. So, this group needs additional attention compared to long term unemployed, ethnic minority workers and other groups with an unfavourable labour market position. Different countries, and within countries different industries and firms, seem to be more succesful when it comes to reintegration than others. This book discusses rehabilitation policies in different European countries and tries to answer the question why some are more and others are less succesful. In some countries rules and regulations are mostly preventive by nature, elsewhere reintegration is the principle goal. Countries also differ with respect to the responsibilities of national and local authorities and private companies, respectively. As the authors do not limit themselves to specific measures, but discuss these measures within the broader framework of legal and policy measures regarding disability the study offers interesting insights in what kind of measures are and can be taken in this field. Moreover, the authors - all of them national and international experts with respect to disability arrangements - discuss the limits and possibilities of the measures taken in the countries under study.
