Replicating Jobs in Business and Industry for Persons with Disabilities. Volume Three.
Tindall, Lloyd W.; And Others
The catalog describes jobs performed in business and industry by persons with disabilities. Each job described is performed by a specific disabled individual. Job descriptions are indexed by disability and job title. Each job description specifies the type of job, the disability of the person performing the job, company information (e.g., company name and description, number of employees, and a contact person), job requirements, job information (e.g., wages, benefits, work schedule, work setting, probationary period, employment history, physical demands, environmental conditions, training period, and amount of supervision); significant duties (e.g., leadership/managerial, problem solving or writing tasks, manual/perceptual tasks); and special considerations (e.g., limitations, special training, job accommodations, personal strengths). After the job descriptions, a section provides the employer perspective on employing persons with disabilities in discussions of such topics as hiring versus employing, employer satisfaction, attributes and competencies of disabled workers, attitudes of employers toward disabled workers, and job accommodations. The last section lists resources for job replication including organizations, publications, and training programs. Appended are a job replication form for providing additional job descriptions. (DB)
