Pub. Date:
The Rehabilitation Act of 1978 and Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 were bold first steps in ensuring the 20 million considered disabled in the US would be treated equitably, but unemployment of the disabled has remained at about 25 to 30 percent from their enactment to the present. This leaves a significant number of people who are well-trained and ready to work. This collection of 12 articles and case studies shows how successful companies such as Hewlett-Packard, Dow Chemical Company, Microsoft and Marriott International have found a significant business case for hiring people with disabilities and creating a disability-friendly culture and climate. Along with these exemplars contributors describe why employers do not hire the disabled and how they learn about the high quality of work and loyalty of such employees and other incentives that go straight to the bottom line, such as tax incentives currently available.
