ABSTRACT

To examine the impact and implications of workplace accommodations during the COVID-19 pandemic for people with disabilities. Systematic searches were conducted from the following Medline, PsycINFO, Scopus, Applied Social Sciences Index and s, Sociological s and Google Scholar. The following inclusion criteria were applied: (i) article published or early online in a peer-reviewed journal from 2019 to 2021 (without language restrictions), and explicitly addressing both (ii) workplace accommodations, adjustments, or modifications during the pandemic and (iii) the impact or implications for people with disabilities. Two reviewers screened all s. Articles were selected by two reviewers, and data was ed in accordance with scoping review methodology. Thirty-seven studies met the inclusion criteria. Studies were analyzed following the guidance for thematic analysis. Three main themes were identified: (1) positive impacts of pandemic-related workplace accommodations on people with disabilities (e.g., improved accessibility, reduced stigma around workplace accommodations, rapid implementation of workplace accommodation, opportunities for advocacy);(2) negative impacts (e.g., worsened physical and mental health, new accommodation needs);and (3) action needed and recommendations (e.g., revisit legislation and policy on accommodations, ensure representation of people with disabilities). This review identified a mixed assessment of the impacts of workplace accommodations during the pandemic on people with disabilities. However, there was a broad consensus regarding the importance of learning from the experiences of the pandemic and taking action to improve accommodation policies in the future. Further empirical research on the workplace accommodation experiences of employees with disabilities during the pandemic is needed. None.

ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND: The COVID-19 pandemic has led to widespread changes in the way people work. Some of these changes represent the same kinds of work modifications or adjustments that have often been requested as workplace accommodations, and which may improve labour market and employment outcomes for people with disabilities. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this scoping review was to examine the literature on workplace accommodations in the pandemic and their impacts and implications for people with disabilities. METHODS: Following a search of six international databases, articles were selected by two reviewers, and data were abstracted in accordance with scoping review methodology. A thematic analysis was used to report the relevant findings. RESULTS: Thirty-seven articles met the inclusion criteria, and three main themes were identified: positive impacts of pandemic-related workplace accommodations on people with disabilities (e.g., improved accessibility, reduced stigma around workplace accommodations, rapid implementation of workplace accommodations, opportunities for advocacy); negative impacts (e.g., worsened physical and mental health, new accommodation needs); and action needed and recommendations (e.g., revisit legislation and policy on accommodations, ensure representation of people with disabilities). Overall, our review identified a mixed assessment of the impacts of pandemic-related accommodations on people with disabilities. However, there was a broader consensus regarding the importance of learning from the experiences of the pandemic to improve workplace accommodation policies in the future. CONCLUSIONS: The pandemic may present opportunities for improving workplace accommodation policies, but our review also highlights the need for more research examining how workplace changes due to the COVID-19 pandemic have impacted people with disabilities.
