Access, Progress, Thrive: Towards an Inclusive Labour Market in Ireland – December 2020 (Download)

Unequal or delayed access to the labour market and progression within employment places migrants at risk of social exclusion, and in the long run, undermines their quality of life and that of their families. Issues of labour market segregation, discrimination, and low pay traps, unless addressed, will lead to poor outcomes for migrant communities.

This report, funded by the Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission, aims to contribute to discussions and policy responses informing the lack of progression, underemployment – and discrimination in the labour market, and it complements existing research in this area.
