Providers that support and assist individuals with disabilities to obtain and maintain employment must have a vast understanding of employment from all perspectives. They must be able to educate the individuals they support on the benefits and rights of employees with disabilities. They must be able to provide relevant information to employers on the benefits of diversity in the workplace, the advantages of hiring people with disabilities, and the work incentives for which they may be eligible. They also need to stay current on best practices, know the legal issues surrounding workplace accommodations and disability employment, and participate in ongoing educational and training opportunities. This page provides links to great resources that will keep you at the top of your game in all areas of employment.
