COST-BENEFIT STUDY OF SLOVENIAN COMPANIES EMPLOYING PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES: IS EMPLOYING PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES BENEFICIAL FOR THE STATE? Print E-mail

Aleksandra Tabaj, Tatjana Brumnič-Smrekar

Abstract

The article presents a cost-benefit study of financing companies employing persons with disabilities, which are a part of social economy in Slovenia. The main objective was to find out financial inputs and outputs for those companies in relation to state-aid. An overview has been prepared regarding the state-aid benefits compared to taxes paid by companies employing persons with disabilities. These companies have existed in Slovenia for more than 65 years. First companies employing persons with disabilities were established in the 1950s and their status was originally determined in the Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment of Disabled Persons Act. In 2016 they employed more than 11.000 persons in Slovenia and are complementary to other options for employment of persons with disabilities in the open labour market.

Key words: persons with disabilities, employment, companies employing persons with disabilities, cost-benefit, state-aid.
