The Obama Administration is making hiring of qualified individuals wtih disabilities within the federal government, as well as enforcement of the Americans With Disabilities Act and other disabilities laws a key priority. In light of expanding opportunities, employers should strengthen their disability discrimination risk management practices.
As part of these efforts, employers may want to learn more about what the federal government is doing about hiring persons with disabilities. The Job Accommodation Network (JAN) plans to hold a free series of three webcasts, presented on 1.5 hour segments on January 4, February 1 and March 7, 2012 at 2 p.m. Eastern Time.
The three-part series will cover the hiring and employment of people with disabilities in the Federal Government. Last year’s participants included federal disability program managers, hiring managers, supervisors, Equal Employment Opportunity Commission representatives and selective placement coordinators.
