Sickness, Disability and Work: Breaking the Barriers (Vol. 1): Norway, Poland and Switzerland
OECD Publishing, Nov 14, 2006 - Business & Economics - 176 pages
Why is it that health is improving, yet more and more people of working age end up out of the workforce relying on long-term sickness and disability benefits? This first report in a new OECD series on sickness, disability and work explores the possible factors behind this paradox. It looks specifically at the cases of Norway, Poland and Switzerland, and highlights the role of institutions and policies. A range of reform recommendations is put forward.
