Researches the employment issues for people with disabilities by examining the impact of disability disclosure, leave as a reasonable accommodation, and the use of job applicant screeners on employment.
“During the summer and fall of 2011, Cornell University’s Employment and Disability Institute and the American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD) collaborated on the development and implementation of a survey on current critical issues around the employment of people with disabilities. …Three primary issues were addressed in the survey: disability disclosure, leave as a reasonable accommodation, and the use of job applicant screeners. These were emerging issues that may have an important impact (positive or negative) on the employment of people with disabilities. The experiences uncovered in this survey provided a foundation for policy development around these very critical issues” (p. 4). (Abstractor: Author)
