Ohio Issues Toolkit on “Hiring Ohioans with Disabilities”

A recent pipeline Ohio newsletter states that “during the work of the task force, it became evident that Ohio employers need a clear, consistent and practical resource that outlines how best to tap into the skilled and motivated workforce individuals with disabilities represent. Hiring Ohioans with Disabilities meets the need by compiling a great deal of information into one convenient, easily accessible location.”

Employers can learn about the following topics included in the toolkit:

    • Best practices from Ohio’s top employers
    • Tax incentives for hiring workers with disabilities
    • Free sources of consultation and assistance
    • Making reasonable workplace accommodations
    • Offering more flexible work arrangements
