Abstract

The situation of people who are absent from work for a long period due to illness or injury and who have become long term disability claimants during their working lives constitutes an issue that is often ignored or absent from political discourse. This heterogeneous group of people is important because it consists predominantly of older workers, generally not supported by services that could assist in their return to work. If the targets of the European labour market are to be met with regard to the employment of older workers, these people should constitute a major target group for reintegration into the workforce.
