A thematic network recommendation in the sphere of public education on the employment of disadvantaged people in the labor market was sent to Ministry of labour and social affairs
- Created on Thursday, 30 April 2015 14:43
At the end of 2014, the non-profit sector representatives met up to formulate recommendations for the civil service under the auspices of the TWCM project in order to raise public awareness about the employment of disadvantaged people in the labor market. The result of the team's work is a letter addressed to the Minister of Labour and Social Affairs Mrs. Michaela Marksová, which contained a specific recommendation on what a public awareness campaign funded by public sources should include in order to improve the position of the disadvantaged people in the labor market.
The awareness campaign, according to the authors, should especially:
- draw attention to the fact that the right to work applies to all people regardless of age, sex or diagnosis
- make visible and appreciate the companies employing people disadvantaged in the labor market
Our MLSA colleagues were instrumental in the formulation of the recommendation, introducing us to the currently running projects of the civil service which deal with raising awareness of employment of people with disabilities.
The final form of the letter was, apart from the involved NGOs, backed up by a range of other members of the thematic TWCM network project.
