Connecting Veterans with Disabilities & Employers

 During this session, we will consider two parts of a research project recently carried out by the Northeat ADA Center.  The first part of this project included a survey conducted in collaboration with the National Society of Human Resource Managers (SHRM) on the preparedness of employers to hire, accommodate and retain veterans with service-related disabilities.  The second part of this project included a survey of veterans with disabilities on their preparedness to apply their rights in seeking and sustaining employment.  We will present the findings of these two surveys and discuss program and practice implications.

Navigating the Accommodation Labyrinth

 The ADA requires that employers provide accommodations for applicants and employees with disabilities in order to remove workplace barriers to provide equal employment opportunity.  For many employers understanding when and how they must comply can be, at times, complex.  This session will help employers develop effective policies, procedures, and best practices that can assure full compliance as well as help to successfully respond to reasonable accommodation requests and needs resulting in creating a productive work environment for all employees.
