Workplace Supports and Job Retention Monograph

The purpose of this research monograph is to describe the research that the VCU-RRTC on Workplace Supports and Job Retention has developed and implemented over the past 4 years. We look at workplace supports and job retention broadly, we do not limit our study to only one disability or one illness or type of injury; furthermore, we do not only look at workplace supports in the context of job retention but also access to the work force and job procurement. We know, in fact, that if workplace supports are not available, or not going to be available, that many jobs, if not most, are going to be not likely for persons with disabilities.
