Small Business at Work: A Toolkit to Help Small Businesses Leverage the Talents of People With Disabilities
It’s been said many times: Small businesses are the backbone of America. They contribute well over half the money and jobs that fuel our economy. They are hotbeds of innovation and new product development. They provide valuable support to your local communities. And they employ about half of all people currently working in the United States. As a small business, your business, your jobs, and your contribution matter not just to you but to all of us. Research conducted by the Northeast ADA Center investigated what small employers need to know about the implementation of Title I of the ADA. This research resulted in our Small Business at Work Toolkit. This toolkit provides curated information and essential resources about how (and why!) small businesses can successfully hire and retain employees with disabilities. You’ll find easy-to-understand, practical advice, along with expert guidance on following Title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Instead of searching the Internet for whatever article may appear first, we hope you’ll come visit our toolkit. Please join us for our introductory webinar for the Small Business at Work Toolkit.
