Beyond the Wheelchair: Workplace bullying and persons with disabilities

Abstract

Researchers nationally and internationally have reflected on the impact of workplace bullying for employees.  While the impact on women and people of color has been considered, little attention has been paid to American workers with disabilities who face workplace bullying.  This article strives to shed light on the potential frequency in which American workers with disabilities face workplace bullying. As there are no studies on this topic, the essay will apply British findings, to the American population in an effort to develop insight to workplace bullying for Americans with disabilities.  Reasonably, one could consider that approximately 41% of those with disabilities face workplace bullying despite the United States protections for those with disabilities.
