Abstract:The inclusion of disabled in mainstream work is essential for a successful integration of disabled people into the society. The employment rate of disabled people differs immensely among the member states of the European Union. Moreover, this rate lays recognizably below the general employment rate. In order to make a step into the world that is characterized by equal treatment, it important to encourage organizations to employ disabled people in mainstream work. Institutional Theory can explain organizational behavior in response to social and environmental pressures, such as legal pressures that arise from legislations. Human values characterize a society. They impact the behavior of individuals and therefore also the response of organizations on legislation. This longitudinal study sets out to assess the impact of human values and legislation on the inclusion of disabled in mainstream work. For this purpose, a unique and new framework to code and rank order legislation was developed. The conducting of a multi-level regression analysis with panel data and controlled country-level correlations provided results which indicated that certain human values and the comprehensiveness of legislation have an effect on the inclusion of disabled in mainstream work.
