Encouraging Employers to Hire Americans with Disabilities
Posted in: News on October 18th, 2011

working disabledWhen Social Security Disability Insurance is brought up as a subject of conversation, it is nearly impossible to separate it from the provisions outlined in the Americans With Disabilities Act. The Americans With Disabilities Act is meant to protect Americans who are living with disabilities, and one of the major provisions that the act makes is that when an individual has a disability, the employer must cover all costs relating to the assistance needed for the disabled person to do their job as well as possible.

What’s the Problem?

The issue with the Americans With Disabilities Act is that many employers find it prohibitively expensive to provide the resources needed for disabled individuals to do their jobs. While it is technically illegal to not hire someone based on a disability alone, this is often a de facto concern for many employers. After all, why would an employer who is concerned with the bottom line wish to hire an individual that they would have to pay out-of-pocket to accommodate?

Many experts are now suggesting that the Americans With Disabilities Act be modified in order to better meet the needs of both disabled individuals and employers. It is somewhat unfair to expect an employer to shoulder the entire cost of disability provisions. It is also not an economically sound decision for many employers. In order to get as many disabled people into the workforce as possible, it is important to strike a balance between the needs of individuals who are disabled and the economic concerns of those who could potentially employ them.
