IWH speaker series: employment and disability


Persons with disabilities face challenges integrating into the labour market arising from stigma, discrimination, and other structural barriers to employment. But what happens when they are successful? What kind of jobs do they get? Dr. Faraz Vahid Shahidi of the Institute for Work & Health shares findings from a recent nationwide survey examining the employment quality of persons with disabilities in Canada. He documents the nature and extent of employment inequities experienced by persons with disabilities, as well as the consequences of these inequities for support and accommodation in the workplace.
