Visions—Workplace: Disclosure and Accommodations

 

PDF | EPUB | Vol. 13, No. 4 (2018)

They can feel self-conscious, different, vulnerable. By the same measure, disclosure is usually accompanied by a request for accommodation—small changes or simple tools that can make success at work easier. Accommodations done well provide protection and support .
