7/7 Now, Lau said he is preparing to go back on the job market once again this fall. But because bias against disabled people isn’t exclusive to UT, Lau knows the process won’t be easy. thedailytexan.atavist.com/seeking-accomm… https://t.co/SzIP6aBYoX
6/ Last month, Lau began the process to receive accommodations after a conversation with another disabled professor. But he's still worried. “Will that then put me in a dangerous position where the department's like, ‘Oh, he's a drain on resources?'" thedailytexan.atavist.com/seeking-accomm…
5/ The CDC says 25% of U.S. adults report having a disability, but just eight out of 3,463 faculty members reported having a disability to UT. A spokesman for Lau's college said questions about accommodations don't impact a faculty member’s position. thedailytexan.atavist.com/seeking-accomm…
4/ Under the Americans with Disabilities Act, employers are required to provide accommodations to disabled employees. But employees are expected to find information about disclosure themselves. UT professors say the stigma makes disclosure difficult. https://t.co/XvJA879bEO
3/ Lau has scoliosis and brain fog, which cause him pain and makes it hard for him to focus. He said some of his UT colleagues have said disclosure of disabilities can be dangerous and will mark him as needy. thedailytexan.atavist.com/seeking-accomm… https://t.co/oMTLMtWSDr
2/ Lau and UT professors said academic institutions, such as UT, can sometimes increase stigmas of disabled people. They said this leads to people becoming hesitant to ask for accommodations. And when they do, the system can be difficult to navigate. thedailytexan.atavist.com/seeking-accomm…
1/ “Is the disability that bad?” English lecturer Travis Lau was asked about his disability during a hiring interview at another university. But he wasn’t surprised by it, @trinady05 reports. bit.ly/35AyPmv https://t.co/MhuAOOHTVE
