Helping the long-term unemployed find jobs and preventing marginalisation

The audit indicated that labour policy measures have seldom led to the rapid employment of the long-term unemployed on the open job market. Measures can have other beneficial effects that help prevent marginalisation, however. The audit sought to determine whether measures aimed at the long-term unemployed help them find jobs and whether measures have other effects that promote welfare and prevent marginalisation. The audit also examined the preconditions for creating employment and welfare effects.
