Report Outlines Framework for Inclusive State Disability Employment Policy

December 9, 2016
Source: Council of State Governments (CSG) and National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL)

This week, the Council of State Governments (CSG) and National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) released the report of the National Task Force on Workforce Development for People with Disabilities, a year-long effort that convened state policymakers to address barriers to employment and identify state-level policy solutions for building stronger, more inclusive workforces.

Structured around four topic areas, the report, titled “Work Matters: A Framework for States on Workforce Development for People with Disabilities,” describes a range of policy initiatives in place by states. The task force and resulting report are outcomes of CSGs and NCSLs involvement in the State Exchange on Employment and Disability (SEED) initiative, a collaborative effort sponsored by the Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP) along with state intermediary organizations, to help state legislators address policy barriers that may hinder the employment of people with disabilities.
