Abstract

In this article, we propose a new analytical framework that distinguishes between the attitudes and behaviour of employers towards the recruitment of persons with disabilities. This allows us to identify four different types of employers: (1) the committed employer (positive attitudes and positive behaviour), (2) the dismissive employer (negative attitudes and negative behaviour), (3) the sceptical employer (negative attitudes and positive behaviour) and (4) the passive employer (positive attitudes and negative behaviour). We apply the typology to a survey of Danish employers on the recruitment of persons with mobility impairments.
