1. Current Status of Korea’s Employment Policy for Persons with Disabilities
The employment policies for persons with disabilities in Korea began with the introduction of the ‘mandatory employment of persons with disabilities in 1990. 


The more persons with disabilities experiencing employment, the higher re-employment rate. As such, it is expected that disability policies and 33 years of know-hows of the agency would help more persons with disabilities become a decent member of our society with their economic activities and escape from poverty.
