U.S. Justice Department Commemorates National Disability Employment Awareness Month
- Join the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) to hold four Town Hall meetings throughout the nation to share information about the proposed ADA Amendments Act regulations and to gather comments on them. All Town Hall meetings will consist of two sessions — one for disability advocates and one for the employer community. These sessions will be completed by November 20th. The four locations are Philadelphia, Chicago, San Francisco and New Orleans.
- Release a video produced by its Disability Rights Section that will identify and respond to a number of common myths held by employers about workers with disabilities.
