  • Black employees with long-term health conditions (LTCS) are not being provided with adequate support in comparison to other ethnic groups, a report has found.
  • Research from Black Thrive Lambeth’s Employment Project explores evidence that “systematic discrimination” prevents black people from securing quality employment opportunities.
  • Black people with LTCs face “double discrimination” as inequalities have only been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic with barriers arising in “structural racism and ableism, and their intersections.”
  • In addition, the report unearthed statistics that show “twice as many young Black graduates compared to their White counterparts were unemployed one year after graduation; and Black workers are twice as likely to have zero-hour contracts than White workers”.
