  • SUMMARY

    This study is designed to identify the status and problems of Korea’s occupational rehabilitation available for individuals with severe disabilities and explore measures to improve it. As individuals’ awareness of rights has evolved over time, people started to focus more on the right to independent living rather than on the right to life. And people’s desire for welfare services and benefits has begun to burst. However, it is true that priority areas or groups like individuals with severe disabilities who need most attention and social consideration are not getting adequate social attention. Looking deeper into the services available for individuals with severe disabilities, we can see that they have a wide range of problems, which represent in microcosm what is happening in the country’s employment welfare sector as a whole.
    If we take a look at the country’s current laws in force, each law has a different definition for individuals with severe disabilities yet fails to encompass all occupational disability types as definitions are made uniformly as a mere formality. Since 2008, occupational rehabilitation facilities have been refurbished but are able to accommodate only a small fraction of registered individuals with disabilities. In addition to the fact that social welfare services to expand employment opportunities for individuals with disabilities are not adequate, there are other concerns raised over redundancies in government programs because multiple delivery mechanisms exist such as the employment support program, occupational rehabilitation program and the program for supporting individuals with severe disabilities.
