Small businesses are the backbone of our nation's economy. In fact, in the United States, small businesses account for over 50 percent of all newly created jobs. While small businesses can provide excellent opportunities for millions of Americans, including people with disabilities; many entrepreneurs/small business owners, unforunately, are hesitant to recruit and hire workers with disabilities.  

The purpose of this report is to assist small businesses "open the doors" and provide employment opportunities for people with disabilities. By closely examining the available research, the Employer Assistance and Resource Network's (EARN) report identifies critical concerns small businesses hold, analyzes those concerns and provides strategies and resources on how best to address them.
