 Questions that the TV presenter will ask the team :

 The question

 Problems in employing people with disabilities?

The answer

Employment is one of the institutional barriers to inclusion of persons with disabilities in all spheres of social life, not only here but also in developed and economically stronger countries of the world, underdeveloped employer awareness, inadequate workplaces and lack of support services for persons with disabilities as well as the absence of a specific policy that would encourage employers to hire them is certainly a barrier to being equal with others. The realization of the right to education, the possibility of further qualification and retraining in accordance with the needs of the market, are the basic conditions for the exercise of the right to employment and subsequent economic independence.

The question

 What are the barriers to employment for people with disabilities?

The answer

 Although employers consider the issue of employment of persons with disabilities a socially important issue, they are most often not interested in solving this problem. As their primary objective is to maintain their own businesses and generate profits, employing people with disabilities and integrating them into the working-age population for employers is usually a secondary concern. It is often the case that businesses that have no legal obligation to employ people with disabilities have never been in a position to think about it

The question

  1. Benefits of employing people with disabilities?

The answer

 Hiring disabled people with employers can generate various subsidies and reimbursements.  

The target group

 People with disabilities, employers and the general public
