2A Implementing Section 503

2A Implementing Section 503

The new regulations for Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act have created a renewed interest in disability as part of diversity within employer organizations. Employers are seeking to change their policies and practices as they relate to disability inclusion as a result of this law. They are also investigating how they can boost responses to invitations to self-identify has having a disability. This session will provide a brief overview of the Rehabilitation Act, provide in-depth information on the regulations defined by OFCCP for Section 503, discuss the difference between disclosure and self-identification, and discuss some strategies to encourage self-identification of disability within employer organizations. Questions will be encouraged and case studies will allow us to apply the lessons learned during the session.
