EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES FOR PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES

The Employers’ Federation of Ceylon (EFC) was established in 1929 as an organization of employers dealing with labour and social issues in Sri Lanka. It is today the principal organization of employers, promoting employer interests at national level, especially focusing on industrial relations and labour law.

The Employers’ Federation of Ceylon (EFC), with an overall vision statement to promote social harmony through productive employment, is implementing several proactive measures to encourage its members to employ people with disabilities.

With a membership of 700 plus companies today, EFC was the first organization to register under the Trade Unions Ordinance and is the principal trade union representing employers.

The EFC, with funding from the ILO, developed the Employers’ Network on Disability with the objective of facilitating employment and training opportunities in the private sector for job seekers with disabilities, which was officially launched in the year 2000. The object of forming the Network is to have a link between the business community and the organizations dealing with disability issues to facilitate mainstreaming its work.
