DISABILITY AWARENESS TOOLKIT

Facing some or other form of disability is a reality all employees may encounter, whether it be the result of an existing disability, or becoming disabled due to illness or injury. Even so there is no reason why such persons cannot remain productive employees for the balance of their working life. There is also no reason why persons with disabilities should be relegated to menial employment jobs without equal opportunities for promotion and advancement.
