Summary of the Draft Disability Employment Action Plan for consultation

We want your feedback on the Draft Disability Employment Action Plan

The Government’s Employment Strategy aims to improve employment for all New Zealanders. To help implement this Strategy, the Government is developing an employment action plan specifically for disabled people and people with health conditions because they often experience barriers to getting and staying in work.

Previous consultation and research on employment for disabled people and people with health conditions was used to create this draft Disability Employment Action Plan (draft Action Plan). We are now checking whether this draft Action Plan has the right actions to improve employment outcomes for disabled people and people with health conditions.

The goals and objectives

The Draft Disability Employment Action Plan has two goals. Each goal is supported by two objectives. Each objective has action areas.

Goal 1 - To ensure disabled people and people with health conditions have an equal opportunity to access good work

Goal 2 - To ensure businesses are good at attracting and retaining disabled people and people with health conditions.

Each objective has a set of action areas and proposed actions. What do you think of the proposed goals and objectives?
