American Job Centers Expand Opportunities

As the 25th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act coming into law approaches, the Department of Labor is working to expand the reach of American Job Centers, the DoL blog reports.

"American Job Centers are essential to delivering on the promise of the ADA because they’re the ones on the front lines assisting people who are seeking employment," writes Tania Mejia for the DoL.

With passage of the Final Rule in September 2013, and implementation beginning in March 2014, employers are more invested in extending equal employment opportunities to candidates with disabilities than ever before. The Final Rule implements Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 while also making provisions to the nondiscrimination provisions of the ADA Amendments Act of 2008.

In other words, the Final Rule is meant to enforce and enact rules already on the books and finally create a more accommodating job market for all candidates.

In addition to the American Job Centers, outlets such as RecruitDisability.org and the CareerCast Disability Network are tremendous resources for job seekers with disabilities. These sources connect candidates with thousands of job opportunities.
