Working Matters

This all-of-government Action Plan aims to help ensure an inclusive economic recovery from COVID-19 where disabled people and people with health conditions can participate in employment as they want to, on an equal basis to others.

The Action Plan is one of several plans that support the Government’s Employment Strategy to create a more productive, sustainable and inclusive labour market.

This plan will provide guidance for all government agencies and industries (including industry specific employers, trainers, regulators and unions) currently working on employment initiatives − including all the new COVID-19 economic recovery initiatives.
