The Role of Labor, Management, a University, and Public Vocational Rehabilitation Agency in Serving Disabled, Disadvantaged Workers. Final Report, 1968-71.
Humza, Albert J.
A 1968-1971 labor-management-rehabilitation (LMR) project revealed rehabilitation gaps in health benefit plans, instances where formal job security was based on the contractual principles of seniority and ability and general lack of retraining and education provisions for disabled employees who sought new jobs. The investigators sought to find disabled workers and members of their families through their work organizations, to deliver available public rehabilitation services to them, to conduct a multi-level education program on work structures and vocational rehabilitation for both labor leaders and rehabilitation counselors, and to research the vocational rehabilitation world of workplace and disabled workers.
