How the EEOC’s LEAD Initiative Helps Disabled Employees

People with disabilities may be differently-abled, but according to federal and state laws, they still deserve fair treatment and should be provided accommodations accordingly so they can be productive members of the society.

The United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) wanted to make sure that the disabled people’s rights are protected and that they are accorded the right amount of attention and care that they deserve.

That is why in adherence to the federal and state governments’ various labor laws, the EEOC came up with an initiative to ensure the proper implementation of these pieces of legislation.

The Leadership for the Employment of Americans with Disabilities (LEAD) is the EEOC’s initiative to ensure that disabled people are given equal and fair treatment and put a stop to the decline of the number of disabled employees in the federal workforce.

This encourages disabled people to go and try applying for any federal jobs and be assured of proper accommodation if hired.

To achieve its goal, LEAD ran a campaign that aims to accomplish the following:

  • Put a stop and reverse the trend of the disabled people’s decreasing number in federal employment.
  • Help increase the awareness of officials responsible for hiring employees that the number of disabled employees in federal service is continuing its decline.
  • Additionally, these officials are educated to do something to encourage the hiring of disabled individuals, especially those with severe disabilities.
  • Conduct various drives to educate disabled applicants on the right manner of applying for a job to ensure that they will be hired.
  • Help educate companies and give them resources to recruit, hire, and provide accommodations to the disabled applicants.

Through LEAD, the EEOC wants to help encourage differently abled people to forget about their disabilities, giving them the opportunity to join the federal service. Though there are still a lot of hurdles that disabled people may need to encounter, the EEOC through the LEAD will make sure that the time would come when disabled people would be able to work efficiently, without problems not just in federal organizations but in private entities as well.

This will put an end to the need to hire a Los Angeles employment discrimination lawyer and file employment discrimination raps.
