Hiring People with Disabilities has Many Advantages and is Easier Than You Think
Hiring individuals who need accommodations is no different than hiring anyone else!
As for cost, research shows that 56% of accommodations cost absolutely nothing to implement – $0.00! The rest of the accommodations were typically under $500. An important note is that when asked how much employers paid for an accommodation beyond what they would have paid for an employee without a disability who was in the same position, the median answer given by employers was $20. Only twenty dollars more than an employee without a disability! Says Amanda Van Tubergen, Employment Specialist for Disability Network West Michigan.
