Abstract: This paper investigates how the employment outcomes of deaf persons in Singapore can be promoted and discusses whether current policies have done so. Primary interviews were conducted with 13 participants, their qualitative responses coded and weaved into an empirical map displaying the factors promoting the employment outcomes of deaf persons. The salience of the stakeholders was also discussed, with the employer established as having the most influence over deaf persons’ employment outcomes. Thereafter, policy discussions commenced, revealing that current policies do not sufficiently foster the enablers required for factors of employment to be achieved. Additionally, current policies which target employers are also not effective in shaping their behaviour to hire deaf persons with equal consideration alongside hearing persons. The findings of this study contribute to the minuscule deaf-related employment research set in Singapore and can be considered for research on employment outcomes of other PWDs.
