Re: Question of the Day
Oh man, you're getting closer to the 'sensitive' issues
No kidding! If you revealed that you can do the work but need some sort of accomodation (accessibility, for example), then many employers will indeed pass you over.
Speaking as someone with a visible physical impairment which doesn't actually impede my ability to do my work, in my experience, employers will often pass you over even if you *look* like you might need some sort of accommodation, whether you do/will or not. They look at you and see dollar signs.
(At the AbilityFirst conference, the very real problem of overhead associated with hiring employees who require accommodations came up, and was countered with good reasons why hiring those employees makes good business sense anyway.)
