There are lack of understanding about the culture of employees with disabilities and the obstacles they faced. Most of the studies were done from employer’s perspective in hiring these group. A study that investigated the experiences from the participant’s perspectives is still insufficient. Thus, this qualitative study aims to explore the perspectives of employees with disabilities (EWDs) towards their workplace. The issues that were being discussed in this study are the challenges, the motivations and also the strategies in coping with the challenges. The study was conducted in Kuching, Sarawak and the data were gathered from 6 participants which were physically disabled and employed in either private or government sector. The data were collected using a semi-structured interview and audio recording. Pilot study was also conducted which involved 2 participants. For the data analysis procedure, content analysis was used in this study. The findings show that the challenges faced by EWDs are mostly in term of facilities accommodated and their limitation of movement. Findings of the study also indicate that the strategies to overcome the challenges that is used by most participants are positive reframing. This study helps to contribute in understanding the experiences of EWDs at the workplace and provide guidelines for the employers in hiring these group
