This introductory chapter emphasizes the critical importance of a focus on employment outcomes for individuals with disabilities in the United States and globally, and confirms the importance of the application of theoretical and analytical expertise across many disciplines to address these issues. Disability employment inequity is an issue that is multifaceted and interfaces with many fields and functions in intricate ways on multiple levels, such as employment policy, law, human resource studies, rehabilitation medicine, vocational counseling, and workplace policy and practice, to name a few. Such complex problems necessitate solutions that are informed by perspectives from multiple backgrounds that individual disciplinary perspectives might otherwise be unable to provide.

Keywords:   disability employment inequity, transdisciplinary approach, employment policy, disabilities, employment outcomes, transdisciplinary model
