Employer Practices for Employment of People with Disabilities: A Literature Scoping Review
Karpur, Arun; Vanlooy, Sara A.; Bruyère, M.
Rehabilitation Research, Policy, and Education, v28 n4 p225-241 2014
Purpose: Research on employment for people with disabilities has focused on the perspectives of people with disabilities and service providers. Empirical evidence about employer practices and their outcomes would inform the development of more targeted interventions. Method: Scoping review was conducted of literature discussing employer-focused research. Results: Research heavily concerned with employer attitudes and culture. Reports of studies of attitudes and behavior are primarily being published for an audience of service providers and advocates; much less is targeted at employers. Conclusions: Results point to need for empirical evidence of employer practices and behaviors and publication outlets reaching broader employer audience.
