What the Government's latest work & disability Green Paper means for employers

A recent Government Green Paper, titled ‘Improving Lives: The Work, Health and Disability Green Paper’, has set out a range of policy options for shrinking the disability employment gap, reducing state spending on health-related benefits, and, ultimately, allowing everyone the opportunity to fulfil their potential.

The Paper says that almost one in three working-age people in the UK have a long-term health condition which puts their participation in work at risk, and that around one in five of the working-age population has a mental health condition. Therefore, it continues, it is evident that “too many people are falling into a downward spiral of declining health and being out of work” and more needs to be done on behalf of employers.
