Dep’t of Labor: Guidance on Employing Young People With Disabilities

Fact Sheets for Employing Youth with Disabilities.  The U.S. Department of Labor (“DOL”), released three new fact sheets that provide helpful information on employing young people with disabilities, including:  Tips for Parents with Children with Disabilities, What Young People with Disabilities Need to Know, and Including Talents of Young People with Disabilities.

The third is of particular interest to employers.  Published by the Office of Disability Employment Policy (“ODEP”), the four-page fact sheet provides a detailed list of references for where to find young people for both internships and for permanent placement.
