Employers Reveal Disability Accommodations Costs Are Similar To Other Accommodations

Feb 25, 2009

(Inclusion Daily Express). A massive nationwide report, 'Survey of Employer Perspectives on the Employment of People with Disabilities' shows that employers are finding that workplace accommodations for disability cost about the same as for workers without disabilities. More workers with disabilities were working for mid-sized businesses -- those employing 15 to 149 workers -- than larger or smaller companies. Perhaps most encouraging is that those companies that have hired one worker with a disability are much more likely to hire other applicants with disabilities. One challenge, however, is that workers without disabilities still move up in an organization much more quickly than their counterparts with disabilities.
