DORS can also serve as a resource on disability and employment matters, including:

  • Disability awareness training.
  • Workforce diversity and inclusion initiatives.
  • The Americans with Disabilities Act, and options and solutions for reasonable accommodations.
  • Worksite consultations to help businesses hire qualified workers and retain valued employees with disabilities.
