ADA WEBINAR HELPS DISABLED JOBSEEKERS
People with Disabilities can Learn How Law Protects Them when Seeking Employment.

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) protects individuals more than they may know. Disabled employees or jobseekers should know how ADA laws protect them in the workplace.

The Washington State Department of Services for the Blind is hosting the upcoming seminar, ADA and Employment for People Who are Blind or Visually Impaired, to learn more about employee options and employer requirements. Mell Toy, Assistant Director of the Northwest ADA Center, will take questions and address topics including reasonable accommodation, working with employers to correct mistakes and the responsibilities of disabled employees.

Afterwards, Job Coach and resume writer, Jeanette Silva will share resume and interviewing techniques to help job seekers highlight their skills and experiences and address disability-related questions from potential employers.
