Friday, June 12th from 10:30am to 12:00pm
This panel, organized by the special interest group on Work, Employment & Society, will address the impact of anti-discrimination legislation and contemporary advancements in employment policy on disability rights. A disability studies lens permits this dialogue to interrogate the boundaries of disability employment. The collection of papers presented here will: add to the body of knowledge on characteristics of a process to change the status quo in employment policy for people with disability; build on prior work analyzing the conceptual relationship between the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Civil Rights Act of 1964; explore the impact of Employment First policy on the rights of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, particularly with regards to entrepreneurship; and use disability theories to explore what workplace analytics means for anti-discrimination laws and for how we understand ability and disability
