This chapter explores ways to measure the effect that different workplace policies and practices have on the ability of individuals with disabilities to enter and subsequently remain in the labor force. The chapter describes workforce practices for the integration of persons with disabilities and provides examples of different employer-focused types of research, such as employment disability discrimination claims; analyses of human resource and workplace policies and practices, including data collection through business and disability advocacy networks; company archival data and analytics; and in-depth company case studies that use measures to assess the workplace culture of inclusion for people with disabilities. For each measurement approach described, key findings, and their implications for future workplace policy and practice are presented.

Keywords:   disability, disability discrimination, discrimination measurement, employer measures, employment, human resources, organizational practices, workforce participation, workplace discrimination, workplace policy
