Draft Disability Employment Action Plan Consultation

Closed 28 Feb 2020

Opened 25 Nov 2019


The Government’s Employment Strategy aims to improve employment outcomes for all New Zealanders. To help implement this Strategy the Government wants to develop an employment action plan specifically for disabled people and people with health conditions because they often experience barriers to getting and staying in work.

Previous consultation and research on disability employment was used to create this draft action plan. We are now checking whether the draft action plan has the right actions to improve employment outcomes for disabled people and people with health conditions.  

The Ministry of Social Development (MSD) is seeking your feedback on how important the proposed actions are to you - do you think they will make a difference? Is there anything important missing?

What Happens Next

Feedback from the consultation period will inform the final version of the Disability Employment Action Plan, which will be released by the Government in 2020.
