Employment Model Research

Fall 2006, BBI received a $500,000, 18-month grant from the U.S. Department of Labor, Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP). The project, “Disability Case Study Research Consortium on Employer Organizational Practices in Employing People with Disabilities,” will investigate connections between corporate practices and the employment of people with disabilities.

The consortium consists of leading researchers at BBI, Rutgers University, Cornell University, Georgia Institute of Technology and West Virginia University.

The new initiative includes partners in Fortune 100 and smaller companies to develop a new approach to measures of corporate practices and employment outcomes for persons with disabilities.
