Worker adaptation and employer accommodation following the onset of a health impairment
Data from the Health and Retirement Study indicate that workers suffering from health impairment are accommodated by their employer and those who fail to receive accommodation either change their demands or change their jobs. Both sides of the labor market adapt to the onset of disability. Older workers prefer to remain with the same employer and those who leave the employer are either severely impaired or lack the ability to change jobs. Workers with at least a high school education prefer to continue working after the onset of a disability but a lack of proper education poses problems for employment.
