Accommodating people with disabilities in the workplace

These benefits were obtained with little investment.The employers in the study reported that a high percentage (59%) of accommodations cost absolutely nothing to make, while the rest typically cost only 0.

The sample included 35,763 allegations of discrimination filed by people with disabilities under the employment provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Group A included impairments deemed by Corrigan et al.

Individuals who have similar impairments may not have the same needs or requirements.

Best practice is to carry out a needs assessment with a disabled employee.

Individual level variables (education, race/ethnic origin, tenure, union membership) were combined with organizational level variables (disability-related organization, grievance procedures, accommodation procedure) in a single model of perceived inequality.
