Tuesday, November 10, 2009: 8:30 AM
Improving employment among people with disabilities is one of the identified goals in Healthy People 2010. This session explores several topics in the area of employment of people with disabilities, including the largely health-related reasons cited by people with disabilities for non-participation in the labor force, perceived non-monetary benefits attained from having a job among a sample of working people with disabilities, the relationship between employment and health, and workplace treatment of workers with disabilities.
Session Objectives: Identify key research issues related to the employment and labor force participation of people with disabilities. Describe the relationship between health and labor force participation among working-age adults with disabilities.
