New Resource for Employers: Disability Nondiscrimination Law Advisor

The Department of Labor has made a new online resource available to help employers determine which federal disability nondiscrimination laws apply to their business or organization. The Advisor also helps recipients of federal financial assistance understand their responsibilities under these laws.

The Advisor provides a customized list of federal disability nondiscrimination laws that may apply and links to detailed information that helps you understanding the requirements under these laws. Employees, job applicants, applicants for or participants in programs that receive federal financial assistance, and individuals receiving services from public entities may also find this Advisor helpful to learn more about their rights under these federal disability nondiscrimination laws. The Disability Nondiscrimination Law Advisor was developed by DOL's Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP).

When you access the Advisor it guides you through a series of questions and creates a potential list of federal disability nondiscrimination laws that may apply to your business or organization. The links to these laws provide statutory and regulatory information and compliance assistance materials. The Advisor also provides guidance and links to other resources related to hiring and retaining employees with disabilities.
