- The measure shows the proportion of all adults (aged 18-64) with a learning disability who are known to the council, who are recorded as being in paid employment. The definition of individuals ?known to the council? is restricted to those adults with a learning disability (with a primary client group of LD) who have been assessed or reviewed by the council during the year (irrespective of whether or not they receive a service) or who should have been reviewed but were not. The measure is focused on ?paid? employment, to be clear that voluntary work is to be excluded for the purposes of this measure.
Paid employment is measured using the following two categories:
- Working as a paid employee or self-employed (16 or more hours per week); and,
- Working as a paid employee or self-employed (up to 16 hours per week).
A ?paid employee? is one who works for a company, community or voluntary organisation, council or other organisation and is earning at or above the National Minimum Wage. This includes those who are working in supported employment (i.e. those receiving support from a specialist agency to maintain their job) who are earning at or above the National Minimum Wage.
?Self-employed? is defined as those who work for themselves and generally pay their National Insurance themselves. This should also include those who are unpaid family workers (i.e. those who do unpaid work for a business they own or for a business a relative owns).
