Workplace Considerations for Employees with Non-Visible Disabilities

Workplace Considerations for Employees with Non-Visible Disabilities People with disabilities comprise a significant percentage of our society. When we think about "disability" we often picture obvious disabilities such as someone who uses a wheelchair or who is blind. But actually a large proportion of individuals with disabilities actually have non-visible disabilities such as learning disabilities or psychiatric impairments. These individuals have a unique set of needs and issues, as well as potential challenges they may encounter in the workplace. This program will explore society's view of people with non-visible disabilities and how that can be reflected in the workplace. It will also explore issues around defining disability, disclosure, and confidentiality in the workplace. Specifically, this program will enable participants to: • Explore issues around defining what a disability can be and increase their knowledge about different types of disabilities; • Consider what affects the decision to disclose a disability and what the employer's obligations and options are for responding and addressing the needs of an employee who is disclosing having a non-visible disability; • Discuss how to navigate performance management issues that involve someone with a non-visible disability; and • Learn best practices around interacting and communicating with employees with disabilities and how to create a disability inclusive workplace.
