All employees within the workplace must be treated fairly and equitably including those with disabilities who may require accommodations that serve to increase access to and maintenance of competitive employment. Human Resource Development (HRD) researchers and practitioners have experience in accommodating employees with disabilities but are now increasingly faced with disorders with which they are not as familiar. One of these disorders is Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). This article provides detailed information on how to detect PTSD in the workplace and implement solutions, including appropriate accommodations, for employees with this disorder. Integration of the Jobs Accommodations Network (JAN) Areas and Considerations with HRD principles is a suggested starting point in an effort to meet the employment needs of these employees.
