Employers who still don't understand diversity.
I find it baffling that even now, in 2013, some employers are still asking why they would want to employ disabled people. Do they not realise that, on average, disabled people:

- Are just as productive as non-disabled people;
- Have less time off sick than non-disabled people;
- Have fewer workplace accidents than non-disabled people;
- Stay in their jobs longer than non-disabled people.

Disabled candidates are premium candidates and should be highly sought after by more enlightened employers.
