A Fiji National Council for Disabled Persons (FNCDP) survey in 2009 revealed 11 per cent of people with disabilities in the country are employed in some form of paid employment.
FNCDP director Doctor Sitiveni Yanuyanutawa said the survey involved 11,402 people with disabilities in the 14 provinces.
Dr Yanuyanutawa said the percentage of people may have decreased or increased over the years.
"However we are happy with the 2007 Employment Regulations Promulgation Decree which has given recognition to people with disabilities," he said.
"Section 84 (4) expressly states that an employer, who for example employs 50 or more workers, must employ on a ratio of at least 2 per cent of people with disabilities out of the total number of workers. Probably when we review the next census, we might have a few ideas of what is really happening."
