The number of disabled people working at private-sector companies in Japan as of June 1 last year topped 500,000 for the first time ever, a survey by the labor ministry showed on Tuesday 9th April.

The number of workers with disabilities increased 7.9% from the previous year to 534,769.5, accounting for a record 2.05% of the total workforce, up 0.08 percentage point and the first reading above 2.0%.

In the survey, a short-time worker is counted as 0.5.

The growth came as the legally obliged proportion of workers with disabilities in payrolls was raised from 2.0% to 2.2% in April 2018, according to the ministry.

But only 45.9% of all companies met the legal standard, down 4.1%
