In 1988, Congress designated October as National Disability Employment Awareness Month. This year's theme is "A Strong Workforce is an Inclusive Workforce: What Can YOU Do?"

To celebrate National Disability Employment Awareness Month, we hosted a special one-hour round table discussion on disability employment. Guests for this round table include Former EEOC Chair Cari Dominguez, Sheridan Walker, Kevin Bradley, James Rodriguez, and Jonathan Hyman.

The discussion looks at issues such as diversity and inclusion of individuals with disabilities into the workforce, effectively recruiting within the disabled community, accessibility and accommodation, compliance issues and employers' legal responsibilities under the ADA, and HR best practices with respect to the employment of individuals with disabilities.
