Survey Provides Overview of Employer Efforts to Employ People with Disabilities

Office of Disability Employment Policy

The U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP) recently published results from its 2018 Survey of Employer Policies on the Employment of People with Disabilities. The survey provides an overview of employer efforts to employ people with disabilities, as well as attitudes toward people with disabilities.

The 2018 survey builds on the evidence established by an earlier 2008 survey, providing nationwide data that OFCCP will use to engage and inform federal contractors through compliance assistance and during compliance evaluations.

ODEP has long focused on developing policies that encourage private sector employers to hire more people with disabilities. OFCCP and ODEP’s partnership in 2019 resulted in the creation of the Excellence in Disability Inclusion (EDI) Award, which recognizes federal contractors who excel in meeting their responsibilities under Section 503 and exemplify the spirit of disability inclusion.
