Many advances have been made in order to promote inclusion of people with disability in the job market: laws, decrees, inclusion guides etc. However, such providences have yet not been effective, considering that even nowadays, in our country, there is a great number of people with disability excluded from the job market. Under cultural-historic psychology perspective, it's understood that work is essential to develop identity and value of an individual as a citizen, so that, social inclusion of people with disability become an ethic compromise to be accomplished by all society, raising possibilities for these people to actively participate of all social instances. Thus, the aim of this study is, to verify the reasons why employers hire, or not, people with disability, analyzing the conceptions in the companies about the social inclusion process and also the working conditions offered to the employers with disabilities. With the purpose of achieving this aim, interviews with professionals who are responsible for selecting and employing personnel, in companies with hundred or more employers in Bauru - SP, will be made, in view of the fact that according to the National Statement of 1988 and Decree n. 3.298/99, these companies are obligated to reserve vacancies for employment of people who have any disability.
