Original title: Wel of niet aan het werk.
'More people in paid work' is the central policy objective of the Dutch government in relation to employment. In order to achieve this goal, it is necessary to know what prevents non-workers from joining the labour process, and what prevents workers from increasing their working hours. This report focuses on three groups: those in work, the unemployed and the disabled. It looks at their willingness to work, what obstacles they encounter to participating in the labour market, and under what conditions people are willing to increase their working hours. It also looks at their experiences with reintegration following a period of sickness, unemployment or incapacity for work.
