This information is based on the Agefiph site and its report “key figures 2010”.
Employment of the disabled
In 2008, 129,100 establishments found themselves obliged to employ disabled workers. 284,000 disabled workers were accounted for in these establishments. The real employment rate for disabled workers in the private sector was 2.6 %.
For organisations such as Cap Emploi (which helps disabled people for recruitment and integration in France), the figures for the long-term support and placement of disabled workers on the labour market are on the increase (+19% between 2009 and 2010).
Today, following the survey on workforce requirements 2011, Pôle Emploi and the Crédoc (Research Centre for the Study and Observation of Living Conditions) estimated there to be 1.5 million recruitment projects among companies, namely an increase of 1.1% in one year.
The changes brought about by the Law of 11 February 2005 which reinforced the obligation to employ disabled workers resulted in a peak in contributions paid by establishments in 2006, with €606 million. Since then, this sum has continued to fall to reach €539 million in 2009 (see graph below).
Contributions to Agefiph by private establishments
Although contributions made to private funds are falling, there is a disparity in contributions between different companies. It has now become necessary to organise concrete awareness-raising actions in order to slow down this decline and promote the most committed companies. Companies are very much interested in creating jobs for disabled people and we are trying to successfully complete these awareness-raising actions.
