Abstract
People with disabilities experience disparities in employment outcomes and studies point to employer discrimination as one likely cause. In this field experiment, fictional resumes and cover letters were sent to employers to assess the influence of disability on hiring decisions. Disability status was identified in the cover letters along with a sentence that briefly explained the mock applicant’s involvement in a disability organization. In addition, the applicants’ race was indicated through the use of common “White-sounding” and “Black-sounding” names. These resumes and cover letters were submitted to 6,016 job openings for accountant positions. The fictional resumes from people with disabilities were less likely to receive expressions of interest from employers, particularly if the resumes were from people with White-sounding names who had good experience. This study increases our understanding of the depth and nature of disability discrimination, as well as the ways disability may interact with other characteristics, such as applicants’ race and experience.
