Thursday, Dec. 1, 2016 at 2:00 pm ET
The National Veterans Technical Assistance Center (NVTAC) hosted the webinar “Job Accommodations: Putting Veterans with Disabilities to Work” on Thursday, Dec. 1 at 2:00 pm EDT.
Job accommodations can be vital for the successful employment of individuals with disabilities. Knowing how, when, and why it might be necessary to disclose a disability is the first and often most difficult part of the accommodation process. This webinar provided information on disability disclosure in the workplace, highlighted limitations commonly associated with veterans, and discussed possible accommodations. Participants learned about the Job Accommodation Network (JAN) and the resources available to assist them and their clients. The session included examples of real life accommodation situations and solutions and time for questions.
The featured guest speaker for this webinar was Melanie Whetzel, Lead Consultant, Cognitive/Neurological Team at JAN.
