The ODEP’s National Employer Technical Assistance, Policy, and Research Center (“the Center”) has launched a website to assist employers in the recruitment, hiring and retention of employees with disabilities.

A self proclaimed “one stop resource for private and federal employers seeking to recruit, hire, and retain qualified employees with disabilities,” the Center was established to provide free, confidential consultation, training, and support to assist employers in expanding their inclusion and diversity efforts by integrating employees with disabilities in the workplace.

The new website, furthers the Center’s goal of education and inclusion by providing among other things, links to sister organizations and a database of pre-screened student and recent graduates with disabilities seeking internships and/or permanent employment.

However, before you implement any policies or changes based on the information gather at this or any other website, please review it with counsel to ensure you are covering all the bases.
