One of the main reasons workers leave their jobs is lack of career advancement opportunities. To be successful, employers should take steps to keep their employees happy, healthy, and professionally fulfilled. Resources that address career development for people with disabilities, disability-related leave, and return-to-work issues are available. One excellent resource for learning how to ensure the inclusion of employees with disabilities in training and professional growth opportunities is the U.S. Department of Labor Office of Disability Employment Policy. ODEP also funded the inaugural UCLA Leadership Institute for Managers with Disabilities.
An important area of knowledge involves medical- and disability-related leave. Useful resources that help employers and human resources professionals sort out which leave laws apply when employees have a disability, injury, and/or chronic illnesses include Employment Laws: Medical and Disability-Related Leave and Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) elaws Advisor.
When transitioning ill, injured, or disabled employees who are returning to work, you may wish to read Business Case for Hiring People with Disabilities.
Take an online course and read general information on the law, and your rights and responsibilities for reemploying employees who were called for active duty.
