Telework: Work from Home as Rising, Universal Accommodation
This study will examine the rate of home-based work by disability status, doing comparisons to pre-2020 outcomes on these measures. We will also examine whether these arrangements continue in 2021 when the crisis will (hopefully) be over, indicating whether the COVID-19 crisis created a short-lived change in working arrangements or a more long-lasting change in the structure of work. We will also conduct a survey of teleworkers with and without disabilities in large companies to identity the rate of home-based work before and after the crisis. We will also explore the effects of telecommuting on work-family boundaries, workload and responsibilities, and job satisfaction.
