Did you know:

  • Studies by firms, such as DuPont, show that employees with disabilities are not absent any more than employees without disabilities.
  • In 1990, Dupont conducted a survey of 811 employees with disabilities and 90% rated average or better in job performance.
  • The same 1990 Dupont Study showed that when comparing the safety records of employees with disabilities, it was identical to the safety records of employees without disabilities.
