State Disability Employment Policy Legislation in 2019

March 17, 2020
Source: National Conference of State Legislators (NCSL)

Lawmakers enacting legislation affecting employment opportunities for people with disabilities had a busy year in 2019.

This was the third legislative session following the release of “Work Matters: A Framework for States on Workforce Development for People with Disabilities.” In partnership with the Council of State Governments (CSG), the National Conference of State Legislators (NCSL) published Work Matters in December 2016 after a bipartisan national task force of state legislators, governors, state regulators, and private industry officials worked to determine legislative options to advance employment for people with disabilities.

Work Matters was part of the State Exchange on Employment and Disability (SEED), an ongoing initiative by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP). SEED works to foster employment opportunities for people with disabilities by assisting states seeking to promote inclusive workforce development.
