Please join us this month as we help to spread a very important message from the Brain Injury Association of America:

In a recent study researchers from Rutgers and Syracuse concluded employers tend to discriminate against job candidates who have a disability of sorts, even those who are well qualified. 

The study compared fictitious candidates with an application or cover letter which made mention of an injury or disability to applications that did not reference a disability or injury. Results showed employers were 26% less likely to show interest in a disabled candidate.
