ADA30: Increasing Access and Opportunity


To commemorate the 30th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the National League of Cities published a blog written by ODEP Deputy Assistant Secretary Jennifer Sheehy on "ADA30: Increasing Access and Opportunity." The blog discusses the importance of involving all Americans, including individuals with disabilities, in local and municipal economic recovery and workforce development efforts. It also provides information on workplace flexibilities during the pandemic, such as accommodations, and highlights ways for policymakers and other government officials to promote and celebrate the ADA.

State Policies on Return-to-Work

The National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL), as part of its work with the State Exchange on Employment & Disability (SEED), published a blog on "State Approaches Foster Retention and Better Outcomes for Workers with Disabilities." The blog highlights the benefits of worker retention for individuals and employers, as well as the state economy and workforce at large. It includes examples of recently enacted policies to increase retention and return-to-work outcomes of people with disabilities and those ill or injured on or off the job. The policies listed in the blog were gleaned from NCSL and SEED's report, "Work Matters: Making Progress in Employment for People with Disabilities."
