Telecommuting, could it decrease unemployment for the disabled?

Posted on

There are several reasons why so many people with disabilities are unemployed.  One of the possible barriers for many disabled people when it comes to employment is transportation.  Taking the bus is not always an option, and even in those cities that offer a transporting system for people with disabilities, using those networks is more often than not very difficult.  Others may have health issues that prohibit them from working in an office environment.  For many, working from home is a perfectly viable option.  Thanks to technology, more and more opportunities to work from home are available.

Of course, as is always the case with great ideas, you have to be careful not to fall for scams.  There are many seemingly legitimate businesses that say they will pay good money to give you a job working from home, but how do you know which options are based on truth?  There are a few reputable places where you can find free scam reviews.  Is working from home right for you?  There are many pros and cons to telecommuting, and you have to weigh them honestly with yourself and any potential employer.  So when thinking about working from home, though it may sound easy, reasonable and workable, you not only have to look at the legitimacy of a company offering this opportunity, but also your own personal situation.  For more great articles about working from home and other disability employment-related information, check out www.esight.org.

What do you think?  Would working at home really be a solution for you or someone you know who may be disabled and unemployed?  Feel free to leave your comments below, this would be a very worthwhile discussion!
