PROPOSAL FOR APPLIED PROJECT1Disability Issue: Employment DiscriminationJacinda EllisProf. Suzanne FrankeUMUCBEHS 320March, 18, 2018
PROPOSAL FOR APPLIED PROJECT2Disability Issue: Employment DiscriminationOne of the disability issues is discrimination during employment. Many of the disabledpeople had laid claims of being discriminated when their conditions were realized by their ownemployers. Although discrimination in employment is illegal, the fact alone does not deter itfrom occurring. The issue is of much interest and would like to know more about the statisticsand reasons behind the problem (Park, et.al. 2016). Another reason as to why I would want todwell on the issue emanates from the fact that I had a friend who was disabled and kept lookingfor jobs and once she got it she did not stay for long before quitting. I do not wish to imagine thatall the disabled go through such a hard time in their employment (Park, et.al. 2016).

The main centerof concentration will be those individuals with a disability such as mental physical and othersbody issues. Disability according to ICF of the World Health Organization is recognized as theresult of interaction between people and environment (Jammaers, et. al.2016). There will be keychallenges that will be discussed such as disability definition complexity, factors that enable andbars employment and the legal state in Europe and America regarding the disability anddiscrimination at work (Jammaers, et. al.2016). The paper will give relevant findings in pastliterature and would recommend where past researchers have not adequately covered. It willfinally conclude by giving recommendations that would be adopted to minimize or solve theproblem of discrimination of the disabled at workplaces. There is about 15% of the population in
