Working with Specialisterne, federal contractors can improve their degree of compliance with the utilization goals in Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 which came into effect in March 2014.

The rule prohibits federal contractors and subcontractors from discriminating in employment against individuals with disabilities (IWDs), and requires these employers to take affirmative action to recruit, hire, promote, and retain these individuals. The regulations establish a nationwide 7% utilization goal for qualified IWDs. Contractors apply the goal to each of their job groups, or to their entire workforce if the contractor has 100 or fewer employees.

Specialisterne can assist State efforts implementing the recommendations from the National Governor’s Association blueprint.  

In 2012 the National Governors Association launched its blueprint “A Better Bottom Line – Employing People with Disabilities”. The report encouraged States to focus on 5 areas:  

  1. Make disability employment part of the state workforce development strategy.
  2. Find and support businesses in their efforts to employ people with disabilities.
  3. Be a model employer by increasing the number of people with disabilities working in state government.
  4. Prepare youth with disabilities for careers that use their full potential, providing employers with a pipeline of skilled workers.
  5. Make the best use of limited resources to advance employment opportunities for people with disabilities.
