Workshop on Learning Disabilities
IER co-hosted a day-long workshop entitled "People with learning Disabilities: Promoting Health and Real Jobs" with the Institute of Health at Warwick. The workshop, led by Dr Carol Robinson, a leader in the field of research in this area, reviewed research on health inequalities and barriers to employment for people with learning disabilities. It also looked at policy and practice designed to improve health and to increase the chances of real jobs. IER's Professor Robert Lindley chaired the afternoon session on Employment.

What does work-related stress cost the country? Bernard Casey of the Warwick Institute for Employment Research will answer this question at a presentation forming part of the University of Warwick’s Festival of Social Sciences on 16 June 2009. He will show that, even with conservative assumptions, work-related stress reduces national output in any one year by as much as 1.25 per cent.
