What business owner doesn’t want access to an untapped labour pool, or an increase in their bottom line? Yet many companies shy away from hiring a person with a disability. Why? There are many reasons, but most are not rooted in fact:
|My worker's compensation premiums will increase||Premiums are based on the type of work and the employer's accident history, not on who does the work.|
|People with disabilities don't have the necessary skills to do the job||People with disabilities have comparable skills and education to those without disabilities.|
|Accommodations are expensive and complicated||The most frequent accommodations cost nothing or very little.|
