Work Life for Employees with Disabilities: Recommendations for Promotion.
Bordieri, James E.; Drehmer, David E.; Taylor, Darrell W.
Rehabilitation Counseling Bulletin, v40 n3 p181-91 Mar 1997
Explores the promotional potential and perceived value of employees with disabilities. Supervisors (N=168) made promotion recommendations for employees of a hypothetical company. Results demonstrate that candidates with either depression or obesity were evaluated more negatively than equally qualified non-disabled peers. Perceived personal blame for the disability/health problem correlated negatively with promotion recommendations. (RJM)
