Untapped Workforce: Benefits of Hiring People with Disabilities
The success of any business depends on hiring the right people. Employers severely limit their talent pool if they do not consider hiring candidates with disabilities. Why say yes to a person with a disability? • Employees with disabilities perform equal to or better than their counterparts without disabilities. • Employers increase their talent pool, meet their legal obligations if they are a federal contractor, boost business growth, and improve their communities. • Businesses accommodating or hiring employees with disabilities may qualify for tax credits and deductions. There are several federal tax incentives available. They include the Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC), Disabled Access Credit, and Architectural Barrier Removal Tax Deduction. Speakers: • Hear from a panel of employers and successful employees with disabilities who will share their expertise. • Vocational Rehabilitation will present on the process of hiring and working with a person with disabilities. • Labor market analysis information will be shared. • Job accommodation and tax credit resources available.
