EN Purpose: The main objective of this paper is to determine the coefficient of change that would allow predicting the economic aspects related to the social demand for the number of Sheltered Employment Workshop (SEW) in the Commercial Labor Market (CLM), acting in accordance with the principles of Sustainable Development (SD) and respecting the existing economic behavior both, in the area of obtaining knowledge and opinions of people with disabilities, active in the labor market. Methodology: The study used relevant literature review, empirical and quantitative research: linear regression analysis and time series analysis which was used to examine the dynamics and direction of the need for the number of Sheltered Employment Establishments in the Commercial Labor Market. Linear regression analysis was used to examine the correlation between both: Commercial Labor Market and Commercial Labor Market. Empirical research was enriched with own questionnaire survey in order to examine the social trend and occurrence of convergence towards the assumptions of sustainable development. In the research, tools of mathematical analysis and linear regression were used to illustrate the current situation on the labour market in the following relation: the number of employers running Supported Employment establishments to the number of disabled employees with capacity to perform paid work. This relationship is presented by giving the coefficient of this change. On its basis, a mathematical equation was also proposed to calculate the predictable number of enterprises benefiting from public support depending on the number of employees with disabilities. The results were supported by a survey of the members of an association that brings together people with 71 disabilities in Poland, which was correlated with global data collected by governmental institutions.
