Literature review conducted to evaluate workplace accommodation outcomes for people with disabilities. The research revealed that few studies have pointed to factors that affect the basic implementation of workplace accommodations, so a retrospective analysis of work-related studies was performed. Data was collected in terms of demographics, workplace accommodation recommendations, and trends. A significant gap was found between the information that was available regarding accommodation in client files and the actual outcomes that were originally intended when the recommendations were made. Accommodations included wheelchair ramps, floor surface modifications, door modifications, bathroom modifications, computer adaptations, and jobsite training. This study was conducted as part of the Rehabilitation Research on Workplace Accommodations.
