Abstract: Despite considerable efforts, a significant gap between the employment rates of disabled and non-disabled individuals remains persistent at present. Moreover, works exploring the job longevity of disabled individuals have been scarce. Thus, this study examines the association of the characteristics of deaf workers and their job longevity. Using the responses of 73 deaf workers in the Philippines, the associations were analysed using a chi-square test of independence. The findings suggest that age, employment status, and work experience are found to influence job longevity. As such, some characteristics may have a limited association. These insights would help extend our current understanding of the employability of disabled workers. Furthermore, they would help inform the design of effective measures for addressing equal work opportunities for disabled workers.
