Read Frequently Asked Questions

Why Should You Attend:

In 2009, the Center for Personal Assistance Services conducted research in which it determined that in California alone, 71.3% of working-age adults without disabilities are employed, compared to 32.3% of working-age adults with disabilities, 16.6% of working-age adults with daily activity limitations, and 14.6% of working-age adults with self-care limitations.

Hiring and accommodating disabled workers can offer a number of important economic, legal, public relations and productivity advantages for a business while helping to limit potential liability due to non-compliance.

Employers who don’t overlook disabled candidates and employees also have a larger talent pool from which to recruit for specialized positions and promotions.

Wading through the landmine of issues surrounding accommodating and engaging disabled employees can seem daunting for most California employers. After all, in the last ten years, it has been the most heavily litigated area of HR law. This course will assist participants in successfully navigating through the most difficult issues.
