Abstract

Whether to have a job is a significant factor for persons with disabilities to affect their quality of life(hereinafter QOL). In South Korea, QOL, however, has been hardly considered in the planning of the employment promotion system for persons with disabilities. Therefore, this study suggests the tasks to plan the employment promotion system for persons with disabilities from the perspective of the improvement of QOL of persons with disabilities by analyzing the employment promotion system for persons with disabilities that has been designed based on the Act on Employment Promotion and Vocational Rehabilitation for Disabled Persons.In results of analyzing the employment promotion system for persons with disabilities with WHOQOL, it was found that, while the domains of level of independence(domain 3), social relationship(domain 4) and environment(domain 5) were considered for the system, physical health(domain 1) psychological aspect(domain2) and spirituality/religion/ personal beliefs(domain 6) were not considered at all. Therefore, to re-plan the employment promotion system for persons with disabilities from the perspective of the improvement of QOL of persons with disabilities, the Act on Employment Promotion and Vocational Rehabilitation for Disabled Persons needs to be amended to include the domains that have not been considered; physical health(domain 1) psychological aspect(domain2) and spirituality/religion/ personal beliefs(domain 6).
