DOL Launches Web Tool to Help Employers Understand Disability Laws
The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) announced the availability of a new tool to help America's employers ensure their employment policies and practices do not discriminate against qualified individuals with disabilities.
The interactive, online Disability Nondiscrimination Law Advisor is designed to help employers quickly determine which federal disability nondiscrimination laws apply to their business or organization and their responsibilities under them. To do this, it asks users to answer a few relevant questions and then generates a customized list of federal disability nondiscrimination laws that likely apply, along with easy-to-understand information about employers' responsibilities under each of them.
The Disability Nondiscrimination Advisor is one of a series of elaws (Employment Laws Assistance for Workers and Small Businesses) Advisors developed by DOL to help employers and employees understand federal employment laws. To access it, go to www.dol.gov/elaws/odep.htm.
