The National Disability Strategy, published in July 2021, sets out how we will work towards creating a society that is fully inclusive for disabled people. As part of this, we recognise the importance of enabling disabled people to obtain, retain and progress in work.
A key commitment in the strategy is to consult on the issue of workforce reporting on disability for large employers, exploring voluntary and mandated workplace transparency.
This consultation is an important step in ensuring we have the best evidence to inform our approach as we seek to ensure inclusive workplaces, increase opportunities for disabled people and tackle the disability employment gap.
There is currently a voluntary reporting framework which provides support to employers to voluntarily report information on disability, mental health and wellbeing in the workplace.
Who we hope to hear from
We hope to hear views from a wide range of people, including
- employers and their representative groups
- disabled people
- disabled people’s organisations
- disability staff networks and representatives
- researchers in the field
This consultation is relevant to people across Great Britain (England, Wales and Scotland). We also invite views from organisations in Northern Ireland who are subject to employment and equality law in Great Britain.
A response to this consultation is due to be published on this page by 17 June 2022.
