We developed and empirically tested a model for employee satisfaction with disability accommodation (our criterion). Our sample consisted of 333 employees who had requested and received a disability accommodation. We found support for most, but not all, of the links in our model. As hypothesized, employees whose input was sought by the organization and employees who received the requested accommodation were significantly more satisfied with their disability accommodation; employee race/ethnicity was indirectly related to employee satisfaction with disability accommodation. Contrary to our model, employee gender was not related to employee satisfaction with disability accommodation.
