By lcenter on:

In the Know is a bi-monthly feature on the LEAD Center blog that highlights important resources and information about the employment, policy and economic advancement of people with disabilities. To find even more useful resources, visit the LEAD Center Resource Center


This resource guide identifies relevant federal and federally funded resources for employers looking to recruit, hire, retain, and promote people with disabilities. It is designed to answer common questions raised by employers and to identify relevant resources for employers who want additional information on specific topics. The goal of this guide is to help employers implement commonsense solutions to ensure that people with disabilities, like all Americans, have the opportunity to obtain and succeed in good jobs and careers.

The guide uses a question and answer format to help employers navigate core issues related to the employment of people with disabilities. It is by no means comprehensive, but it is meant to provide answers to key questions in an easy-to-use format, with links to federal and federally funded resources that can provide further information.
