Definition of disability and long-term health conditions used in this paper: But we follow the Equality Act definitions in this paper, so: Tackling a significant inequality — the case for action Chapter summary In this chapter we set out the injustice of the disability employment gap.
Being out of work is associated with a range of poor health outcomes. The workplace can either support health and wellbeing and the health system can actively support people into work in a virtuous circle or the workplace can be unsupportive and health and work systems can work against each other.
For every week, every month, every year someone remains outside the world of work, it is increasingly more difficult for them to return and their health and wellbeing may worsen as a result. We must address this downward spiral.
Being in the right job can be positively life changing. Many factors such as autonomy, an appropriate workload and supportive management are important for promoting health at work. We also recognise that some disabled people and people with health conditions might not be able to work due to their condition, whether in the short or long term.
This government is committed to ensuring that they are fully supported by the financial safety net that the welfare system provides and so this consultation does not seek any further welfare savings beyond those in current legislation. The UK employment rate is the highest it has been since records began.
This leaves people, and in some places entire communities, disconnected from the benefits that work can bring. This is one of the most significant inequalities in the UK today and the government cannot stand aside when it sees social injustice and unfairness.
That is why we have set ourselves the ambition to halve the disability employment gap. The disability employment gap also represents a waste of talent and potential which we cannot afford as a country: Action is needed now to prevent this situation getting worse 26 We have seen that the costs, to the individual and the economy, of the disability employment gap are already unacceptably high.
Trends in demography and population health mean that we need to take action now to prevent these costs rising further. Between and the UK will havefewer people aged 16 to 49 but 3.
For example, new information and communication technologies have changed the nature of work tasks. For example, advances in technology can assist people to remain in work where they might have been previously unable to do so.
Lifelong learning can also offer the opportunity for people to gain new skills to change roles if they develop a health condition or disability, or an existing one worsens. Currently, 6 out of 10 adults are overweight or obese, 42 nearly 1 in 5 adults still smoke, 43 and more than 10 million adults drink alcohol at levels that pose a risk to their health.
Case study — Susannah Susannah was diagnosed with osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis inshe had lived with symptoms for more than 6 months before getting a formal diagnosis.
She has lived a very active life and was working on a farm in France at the time of diagnosis. Following diagnosis, Susannah returned to the UK and now works as the personal assistant at a country house and estate. Upon receiving her diagnosis, her employer was quite understanding of the impact rheumatoid arthritis was having on her.
Her manager spoke with the HR team who provided her with reasonable adjustments to her workplace. Fatigue is also major issue for Susannah, as with many others with rheumatoid arthritis, she feels very tired after a day at work and this limits her from socialising in the evenings or at weekends.
Nevertheless, she admits she does have some difficulties with her workload but she does not feel comfortable asking her employer for further adjustments to it. In light of her current difficulties she is planning to retire early, having originally planned to retire at She says she has accumulated enough earnings to have a reasonable retirement.
When asked if anything could accommodate her to remain in work and thus not retire, she says working 3 days rather than 4 would probably be sufficient, however, she says this would amount to a job share which would be impractical for her employer and something she is not prepared to ask for.
Before my diagnosis I never contemplated having to retire early but now I see it as almost inevitable. The disability employment gap is affected by a number of factors, for example people frequently move in or out of disability and employment over time.
It is therefore important to look at a wider group of work and health indicators to allow us to better understand the wider picture.
The Work, Health and Disability Green Paper Data Pack accompanying this publication includes more statistics about the disability employment gap. Fair Society, Healthy Lives 48 provided evidence that the conditions in which people are born, live, work and age, are the fundamental drivers of health and health inequalities.This paper combines general definitions of innovation applicable in all economic sectors with a systems approach, to develop a conceptual framework for the statistical measurement of innovation.
