Inclusive Research is about people with intellectual disabilities doing research with other researchers. Each person in the research team is important and is seen as an expert.

The Centre for Disability Studies (CDS) Inclusive Research Network is a group of people with intellectual disability doing research with other researchers. The research is not done to the people with intellectual disability. They work alongside the other researchers.

The research question in this paper is: "What are the experiences of people with an intellectual disability around their right as workers?"

While some people were happy with their work and felt their rights were being met, there were other people who were not happy with their workplace. Some people were bullied and treated unfairly.
