Wage subsidies and hiring chances for the disabled: some causal evidence

Stijn Baert ()

The European Journal of Health Economics, 2016, vol. 17, issue 1, 71-86

Abstract: This study evaluated the effectiveness of wage subsidies as a policy instrument to integrate disabled individuals into the labor market. To identify causal effects, a large-scale field experiment was conducted in Belgium. The results show that the likelihood of a disabled candidate receiving a positive response to a job application is not positively influenced by disclosing entitlement to the Flemish Supporting Subsidy.
