A sample of people with disabilities responded to a questionnaire that addressed beliefs about the employment opportunities of disabled applicants as well as to a measure of fear of negative evaluations. Results indicated that responses to the employment questionnaire yielded the same factors as did responses from non-disabled subjects in previous samples. Employment beliefs were related to the fear of negative evaluation and to the length of time that subjects had a disability. Those who had a greater fear of negative evaluation and who were recently disabled believed that the disabled had less opportunities and received less support than did those who had less fear of negative evaluation and who had a disability for a longer period of time.
