Frequently Asked Questions Employment

Are there special tips for dealing with someone who has a disability? For instance, should I offer assistance to a person with a disability?

Common courtesy should prevail when interacting with individuals with disabilities, as with all other employees. If questions arise as to whether assistance should be offered or whether a particular accommodation is necessary, the best course of action is simply to ask the person with a disability his or her preference. Most people with disabilities will not become offended if asked their preferences and would, in fact, welcome the opportunity to share information that would create a more pleasant work environment for everyone.
