Full course description
Live Webinar on 1/26/21 from 10-11:30am: The use of sound ethical guidelines is critical in the employment process as the job seeker with a disability relies on the knowledge and expertise of the employment provider to guide many decisions. This presentation focuses on disclosure issues related to work. Grounded in legislation and policy, disclosure of a disability is a consideration throughout a person’s job experience. And, this impacts how services are marketed, job development practices as well as direct communication with the employer. The session will share information to guide a person through the decision-making process, the pros and cons, and employer concerns.
Upon completion of this webinar, participants will be able to
- Identify legislation that provides for the rights and protections for job seekers with disabilities.
- Outline steps in the decision-making process between the CRP and service recipient.
- Define disclosure and issues related to the person, different situations and personal preferences.
- Utilize strategies to effectively support a person in making and implementing disclosure decisions.
