Employer Attitudes toward Individuals with Disabilities

A gainful employment in a competitive and an integrated setting not only is a relevant form of public health promotion intervention, but also is a basic human right that everyone should have equal access to without discrimination. People with disabilities, however, are more likely to encounter barriers to a gainful employment as compared to those without disabilities; particularly, stigmatizing attitudes toward disabilities have been frequently cited as a major barrier to employment. Therefore, this webinar aims at providing an overview about how stigmatizing attitudes toward disabilities may affect goal-pursuing behavior (e.g., looking for a job) for people with disabilities; how employer attitudes may vary toward different type of disabilities; and how employers’ cultural background may be associated with their areas of concerns on hiring people disabilities.
