Workplace Disability Diversity and Job-Related Well-Being in Britain: A WERS2004 Based Analysis
39 Pages Posted: 2 Mar 2009
This paper attempts to establish empirically whether there is a link between workplace disability and employee job-related well-being. Using nationally representative linked employer-employee data for Britain, I employ alternative econometric techniques to account for unobserved workplace heterogeneity. I find that workplace disability diversity is associated with lower employee well-being among people with no reported disability. Tests conducted also indicate that workplace equality policies do not ameliorate this effect.
