    HIRING AND SUPERVISING

    AN EMPLOYEE

    WITH A DISABILITY

     

    THE WORKSHOP

     

    The SEED can help your company develop an effective disability and diversity program for all of your employees.  We will help your company assess and eliminate architectural, attitudinal and cultural barriers for people with disabilities in your company.  We will teach staff who are charged with hiring what they can and cannot ask under the Americans with Disabilities Act and answer any questions they may have about hiring people with disabilities.  We will help your company maximize the benefits of diversity by effectively integrating people with disabilities at your company. 

     

    Quite often, managers won't hire someone with a disability because they don't know what is involved, or because they are afraid that it will cause more problems than it solves. This is rarely the case.  The SEED will teach your managers and supervisors how to train and supervise people with disabilities.

    • Increasing disability awareness for your staff including human resource personnel.
