The status "Person from the group of benefited people with disabilities" is intended to help individuals gain greater participation in the general labour market; membership of this group legitimises support and assistance. However, this regulation for practical use in Austria was derived from the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, which demands inclusion. This term implies that people are accepted in their diversity and that attributions to a certain "problem group" are unwanted. On the basis of reflections by some authors, it should therefore be pointed out that the definition and legal regulation of people as "benefited" does not correspond to the ideal of an inclusive society. Necessary changes, especially of the effort-concept, are being discussed. In addition, current data on the unemployment rate, for example, will be presented in order to draw attention to the fact that integration in the general labour market has not (yet) been achieved. Finally, the role of social work is cited, which also needs to be further developed in its job description in relation to people with disabilities.
