Abstract

A key aspect of quality employment outcomes for individuals with disabilities is receiving benefits similar to those expected by all employees. Access to employee benefits is often a barrier to finding a job for individuals with disabilities. This study compared access to health insurance, paid vacation, paid sick leave, and retirement of full-time employed individuals with disabilities to access of workers in the general population. Results indicated that workers with disabilities had access at a lower rate than workers in the general population. Implications for rehabilitation counselors are discussed.
