Entitled “Employment and handicap in the quinquennium Holland – Setbacks, Initiatives and Results”, this document is a powerful reminder of the president of the Republic at the proposal 32.1 of its program of campaign by which he undertook to “guarantee the existence of a disability in each act,” and to “strengthen the sanctions in case of non-respect of the 6% of disabled workers in the enterprises, public services and local communities”.

The Association considers that “the economic model of public Funding and private for the employment of people with disabilities, weakened by decisions of punctures and exemptions, successive government, proves to be inadequate to cover tomorrow their missions of access and maintenance in employment”.

on The 28th of September, with a budget of “battle in the service of the job to 2017″, the minister of Labour, Myriam El Khomri, stated that “the budgets of Insertion to the economic Activity and workers with disabilities [were] sanctuarisés and even rising slightly : with 1.18 billion euros, they allow you to finance 88.500 aid to the position.”

“The average duration of unemployment of a job seeker’s disability is 788 days compared to 577 days for the rest of the population.”

However, and there is not the least of the paradoxes, the number of disabled people in employment also increased, stresses the document.

A better recognition

This phenomenon is explained by a better recognition of the quality of worker in a situation of disability, and a dynamic and maintaining employment developed in the companies”.

Everything is not black for the Association of the Paralyzed of France, which welcomes some of the measures taken under the five-year term of François Hollande. In particular, the introduction of cumulation between the premium of activity and the allocation disabled adult (AAH), which resulted in a gain of purchasing power “non-negligible” for at least 400,000 people.

The FPA also welcomed the implementation of the personal Account of activity, which allows to preserve the rights of a person whether or not it is operating, as well as the personal Account of training, which are a “nod to a better consideration of the needs of guidance and counselling in the employment” of persons with disabilities.
