[Excerpt] Nowadays, more and more employers are willing to employ persons with a disability after learning about their working capacity. However, some employers who wish to offer them employment opportunities might have concern over their accommodation in workplace and have reservation about employing them.

In fact, there are various services offered by different organisations with a view to facilitating open employment of persons with a disability so that they could fit in to their work and integrate into society. This handbook is published by the Selective Placement Division of the Labour Department in order to enhance the confidence of employers who have already employed disabled staff or those who wish to employ persons with a disability by introducing a range of support services and the means through which these services could be acquired. We hope that by introducing these support services to employers and disabled employees, the working relationship between them will be enhanced.
