Home Again and Back to Work: The Employment of Veterans with Disabilities

Presenter: Hannah Rudstam, Extension Faculty, Cornell University Employment and Disability Institute

Description: Work is not just about a paycheck.  It is also about identity, pride, connection and, for many veterans, it is also about healing. Veterans bring a lot to a workplace: skills, discipline, resilience and teamwork. This is as true for veterans with disabilities as it is for others. Yet, many veterans with disabilities fear discrimination in the workplace, and are hesitant to request accommodations.
This webinar will briefly consider two research studies. One study surveyed 421 veterans with disabilities to describe their readiness to enter (or re-enter) the workforce as a person with a disability. The other surveyed 1,083 HR professionals to describe their knowledge, expectations and practices around employing veterans with disabilities. This webinar will explore and discuss the practice implications of these studies for employers, disability service providers and veterans themselves.
