Did you know?
- More than 1 million Australians with disability work in a wide range and variety of industries and careers?
- Research shows 79% of Australian businesses are open to hiring people with disability, however many are unsure about what is involved in the employment process at a practical level.
- Many employers and small businesses across Australia already employ people who have a disability. However, it is not always obvious, and many employers are not aware that some of their staff may already manage life with some form of disability.
- Some people with disability face barriers when seeking and engaging in employment. This is reflected in lower rates of employment than those without disability.
