Supported Wage System

Supported Wage System is a pay arrangement for employees with disabilities. It takes into account the individual's productivity compared to that of non-disabled employees doing the same or similar work.

This system evaluates the productivity level of an employee with a disability and adjusts their pay accordingly. For example, if an employee with a disability can do 80% of the work a non-disabled employee can, they would receive 80% of the standard wage. This approach aims to provide fair compensation based on actual work capabilities ensuring inclusivity and equal opportunities in the workplace.
