Integration measures in preparation for occupational rehabilitation (Art. 14a InvIA) bridge the gap between social and occupational integration. They are targeted in particular at the insured whose capacity to work is impaired as the result of mental health issues
The following groups are entitled to these measures:
- individuals whose capacity to work has been 50% or less for a minimum of six months;
- individuals under 25 who have yet to enter the workforce and are at risk of invalidity.
The measures fall into three categories:
- socioprofessional integration measures
The focus here is on general skills training. The purpose of these measures is to give recipients the opportunity to acclimatise to the workplace, facilitate their social integration and boost their motivation, primarily through resilience training and work training placements. Participation in these measures presupposes that the individual has integration potential.
- transitional employment measures
The purpose of these measures is to enable recipients to establish and maintain a daily routine and preserve their current capacity to work until they are able to participate in occupational measures or take a job in the primary job market.
- youth integration measures
These measures are targeted at young people under the age of 25 who have completed their compulsory education. Their aim is to prepare recipients for entry to first-time vocational training.
