Listen: Study Shows People With A Disability Are Twice As Likely To Quit A Job.

: 03/16/2017 - 10:46

People with a disability are twice as likely to quit a job.

That's according to a new report from the ESRI which points to a need for flexibility over hours, equal access to services and support for additional costs from the disability itself.

Angela O'Connor is from Train Ability, a company which provides disability awareness training for staff in the private sector.

She says employers need to be aware that help is available, and it's partly funded by the Government.
