Accessibility Help for Employers

Access4Employment provides employers with consultation and training services to make the workplace accessible and productive. A4E ensures that adults with disabilities have equal opportunities to stay productive, independent and efficient in the workforce and in their communities. This includes adults with an existing disability, as well as those who acquire a disability via an accident or medical condition, as well as aging senior adults and veterans.

Fact: Talented people with disabilities want to work but they face obstacles in the workplace.

Fact: Many employers face legitimate obstacles and may lack understanding of current laws and tools that are available to make their choices to hire disabled persons easier. In fact, most employers today still believe that disabled workers can’t perform their jobs as well as non-disabled workers and most expect to pay a high cost to adapt jobs to people with disabilities. This simply isn’t true.
