Unemployment and underemployment of citizens with disabilities continues to be a national crisis. An alternative work arrangement of particular interest to people with disabilities is telecommuting, also called telework. Telework is work performed at a distance using information and communication technology.
For many persons with significant disabilities, the increasing prevalence of telework offers the possibility of an accessible barrier-free workplace, flexible scheduling and the elimination of disability-related bias or discrimination. Still, many employers will question the value or need for telecommuting within their business. This research project directly addressed these issues. Order this Manual Online $7.95
