The literature review aims to answer the research question: what are the characteristics of current good practice in employment programs for people with disabilities? The paper reviews literature from 2013 to 2018 to identify the barriers to and facilitators of meaningful employment for people with disabilities. Eight good practice characteristics, derived from the literature, are explored in detail. Characteristics identified are interconnected and do not exist in isolation from each other. These characteristics include: consultation with people with disabilities; focus on capabilities; senior management support; inclusive recruitment and hiring practices; workplace adjustments/customised supports; mentoring/natural support; reducing bias in the workplace; and increasing knowledge of disabilities amongst staff.
