Vocational rehabilitation counselors (VRCs) play an essential role in facilitating reasonable accommodation outcomes between job-seekers/employees and employers. In individual cases, the VRC can help build the job-seeker/employee’s confidence in requesting reasonable accommodation. For employers making commitments toward more diverse and inclusive workplaces, the VRC can serve as a collaborative partner to meet those goals.
Part 1 of this two-part webinar will offer an overview about what a VRC needs to know about reasonable accommodation under Title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act. Participants will learn how to coach qualified individuals with disabilities to facilitate an open and honest dialogue with potential and current employers.
