Background info

Currently almost 50% of people diagnosed with MS are in limited employment, if any, three years after diagnosis. After 15 years, almost 80% of people stop working for a range of reasons, many not asymptomatic.

Many people with MS want to work and with support, can continue to have successful careers. The Pact and Toolkit provide employers with the basic information on how to make the adjustments so experienced members of staff can stay in work. There are also tips and surveys to evaluate and ensure businesses recruitment practices are truly ‘equal opportunity’ and not excluding anyone from the talent pool.

We need your support to make the Pact work. The European Multiple Sclerosis Platform (EMSP) is asking businesses, national and European decision-makers and all employers to support a recently launched Employment Pact for people with multiple sclerosis (MS) and other neurodegenerative diseases.
