VIOLANTE, Rômulo Rodrigues y LEITE, Lúcia Pereira. Employment of people with disability: an analysis of social inclusion in the job market in the city of Bauru, SP. Cad. psicol. soc. trab. [online]. 2011, vol.14, n.1, pp. 73-91. ISSN 1516-3717.
Based on the precepts of social inclusion, this research objected to examine the employment of people with disability (PWD), according to decree nº 3.298 which establishes hiring quotas for PWD in companies with 100 or more employees. Interviews were made with employees of HR departments in 12 different companies located in the west side of the state of São Paulo, based on a structured script. All the interviews were transcripted and gathered in analysis categories. The results showed that one third of private companies comply with the regulation for employment of PWD. Corporate policies prioritize hiring of people whose disabilities do not demand structural modifications in the work environment, or those whose disabilities represent a positive aspect for production lines. The majority of the interviewed understand disabilities as an individual phenomenon. Although they have talked about equal rights for everyone, the majority of them do not present a consistent speech based on the precepts of social inclusion, for they fail to promote actions for supporting the population with disabilities and expecting that those with disabilities are the ones responsible to adjust themselves to all imposed conditions.
