Presented by Dinah F. B. Cohen

President Obama's disability agenda includes plans to increase the employment rate of workers with disabilities by effectively enforcing current regulations. But behind the push to hire more employees with disabilities, agencies are faced with lingering concerns about accommodating them.

How do you do it? And how much does it cost?

In just 90 minutes, Dinah Cohen, Director of the DoD's Computer/Electronic Accommodations Program, equips you with the tools you need to help employees with disabilities and wounded service members thrive in the federal workplace. You learn hiring, accommodation and retention strategies you can put into action to improve your agency's representation of individuals with disabilities, including:

  • Where to locate potential recruitment resources
  • Various hiring authorities available to federal agencies
  • How to use the Schedule A Appointment Authority to hire people with disabilities
  • And more!

Plus, you get guidance on the accommodation process including how to discuss the essential functions of the job with the employee to determine the appropriate accommodation, assistive technology options available, as well as the true cost of accommodating employees with disabilities.
