(On-demand session released) Investigating the Effects of Disability Disclosure at Work

Individuals with invisible disabilities choose how to share disability-related information at work, yet have limited evidence-based resources to inform this decision. In this presentation, I describe my research on workplace disability disclosure including: disclosure strategies used, development and validation of a measure that assesses the extent to which strategies are used, and links between strategy use and individual/workplace outcomes.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Learn disclosure strategies used by those with disabilities at work
  • Explore the individual and workplace effects of disclosure strategies
  • Discover the effectiveness of various disclosure behaviours at work
