The launch of the guide aims to give those with disabilities the information they need to make an educated decision on whether or not they will disclose their disability status to employers.

People with disabilities face additional challenges in the job search process. Many grapple with the decision of whether or not to disclose their status to potential employers. Often, disabled applicants fear that they may be rejected because employers do not want to deal with the inconvenience of accommodating their disability. However, an effective disclosure strategy can be beneficial for people with disabilities seeking employment.

The guide includes legal information on ADA regulations to give those with disabilities a clear understanding of their rights and the responsibilities of the employer.

In the disability status disclosure guide, the author discusses the pros and cons of disability disclosure. However, the advantages and drawbacks of disclosure vary depending on the situation. For example, a disability can help to explain a gap in an applicant’s resume. In addition, disclosure is necessary if an applicant’s disability requires special accommodation, as employers are not required to accommodate needs that have not been disclosed.

Throughout the guide, the author discusses factors to think about before, during, and after a job interview when considering disability status disclosure.

In addition to providing resources for disabled job seekers, disABLED Person Inc hosts job listings posted by reputable employers.

The company is truly dedicated to connecting disabled people with accommodating employers. A spokesperson said: “It is our mission to work with employers to find jobs for the disabled. All the jobs on our job boards are posted directly by the employer or the employer’s representative. This means that you can be assured that the job posting you found is relevant.”
