Disability and earnings: Are employer characteristics important?

Author Info

  • Jones, Melanie K.
  • Latreille, Paul L.

Abstract

We use matched employee-employer data from Britain to assess the influence of disability-specific workplace policies and practices on the earnings of disabled workers. The presence of equal opportunities policies increases the relative wages of disabled workers, but this is partially offset by the negative influence of workplace accommodations.
