Short Briefing on the EU Disability Employment Package

The Disability Employment Package is one of the 7 flagship initiatives of the EU Strategy for the Rights of Persons with Disabilities 2021-2030.

It was presented by the European Commission in 2022 to improve the conditions of people with disabilities in the EU labour market, given that currently only 50.8% of persons with disabilities of working age in the European Union (EU) are employed.

The package does not only cover employment but also access to long-term quality health and social care.
