The Employer Assistance and Resource Network (EARN) monthly newsletter features and recognizes employers' successful practices for outreach, recruitment, hiring, and accommodating workers with disabilities.
This issue features information on the Workforce Recruitment Program database, a newly archived webinar on hiring and retaining disabled veterans, the Partnership on Employment & Accessible Technology's “Future of Work” podcast series, upcoming events, and more.
New Resource - EARN Employer Financial Incentives Webpage To assist employers in understanding the financial incentives available to help them capitalize on the talents of people with disabilities, the Employer Assistance and Resource Network on Disability Inclusion has developed an Employer Financial Incentives webpage. This resource provides comprehensive information on the topic, explaining how these incentives encourage the hiring of individuals with disabilities and support modifications and accommodations that enhance workplace accessibility and productivity. The webpage contains detailed descriptions of the different types of employer financial incentives, which include Federal and State tax incentives, veteran-specific incentives, and incentives for implementing Return-to-Work/Stay-at-Work programs.
