Abstract

It is estimated that there are 43 million Americans with disabilities, many of whom are significantly unemployed or underemployed compared with their nondisabled peers. This article describes the role of employers, management, and especially the HR professional in minimizing disability discrimination. It describes the findings of a recent study of private and federal sector employers’ responses to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Rehabilitation Act, and other disability nondiscrimination legislation, and points to areas that this research indicates are ways to successfully maximize the integration of people with disabilities into the workplace.
