Heymann, Stein & Moreno's New Book: Disability and Equity at Work

BooksMichael Ashley Stein (Executive Director of the Harvard Law School Project on Disability) writes to tell us of the new disability workplace law book he has co-edited with Jody Heymann and Gonzalo Moreno. 

From the  press release by Oxford University Press on Disability and Equity at Work:

Despite international and national guarantees of equal rights, there remains a great deal to be done to achieve global employment equality for individuals with disabilities. In OECD countries, the employment rate of persons with disabilities was just over 40%, compared to 75% for persons without a disability; in many low- and middle-income countries, the employment rates are even lower.

There are numerous reasons why persons with disabilities fare poorly in the labor market; Disability and Equity at Work is the first book to document what can be done to improve this imbalance.

Follow the link above to find this important and timely book on the rights of the disabled in the workplace.  It is sure to be at the center of the conversation of how to improve employment outcomes for the disabled for many years to come.
