MS Ireland launches dedicated resource ‘Understanding MS@Work’ for people living with MS and their employers to become more informed on the daily impact of MS. 9 out of 10 people with MS say the pandemic has helped steer conversations with their employers about the benefits of working from home long-term.

  • New research among MS Ireland members reveals impact of COVID-19 on employment, and how working life with MS can be better understood by employers
  • 80% of people with MS say the way they work has changed as a result of the pandemic
  • Although 85% say their employer knows they are living with MS, more than one-fifth (21%) of respondents cited ‘lack of understanding / empathy’ as the issue that most impacts their working life
