The many well-intentioned special regulations for severely disabled employees make it difficult to break down the prejudice that unfortunately still sometimes exists among employees and employers that "severely disabled equals disabled" and to encourage companies to hire more severely disabled people. Many protective regulations often have the opposite effect of inclusion by creating additional barriers to recruitment. Professional help and support to overcome objective obstacles and successful examples of successful integration and inclusion are crucial to increasing the participation of severely disabled people in working life. Above all, the professionals in the employment agencies and rehabilitation providers and, last but not least, the integration offices and specialist integration services are called upon here. It would be counterproductive to continue to suggest that people with disabilities have a lower level of performance per se through new - albeit often well-intentioned - protective regulations or further over-regulation in disability law.
