The word disability is an umbrella term that covers a wide range of conditions. Often, the term carries a negative stigma about an individual’s capabilities. This makes the decision to disclose disabilities in the workplace difficult. It is important to know your workplace rights and the employer’s responsibility in order to accommodate.
