Promoting Stay-at-Work/Return-to-Work Policies: New Recommendations to Help Workers Who Experience Illness or Injury

Thi Policy Forum and Live Webinar is scheduled for Thursday, October 22, 2015 from 11:45 a.m.–1:30 p.m. EST, and sponsored by the Stay-at-Work/Return-to-Work Policy Collaborative and the Center for Studying Disability Policy at Mathematical Policy Research. Each year, millions of workers in the United States lose their jobs or leave the workforce after their ability to work has been disrupted by a medical condition. Keeping these workers in the labor force could help them maintain their standard of living; stay productive; and avoid dependency on Social Security Disability Insurance, Medicare, and other federal programs. As part of the Stay-at-Work/Return-to-Work Policy Collaborative—funded by the U.S. Department of Labor's Office of Disability Employment Policy—three expert-led policy workgroups have developed actionable policy recommendations to help workers keep their jobs if they experience a potentially career-ending medical condition. At this forum, the leaders of each workgroup will share their insights and address the central question: How can we reduce the number of workers who eventually lose their jobs due to a medical condition? To register for the Policy Forum or Live Webinar, please click on View Page Now or go to: http://www.mathematica-mpr.com/events/csdp-forum-october-2015-promoting-stay-at-work?utm_source=SilverpopMailing&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=CSDP%20Forum%20Reminder%2010%2022%2015%20(2)&utm_content=&spMailingID=12659472&spUserID=Njc2ODkyNzQ1MTcS1&spJobID=640873925&spReportId=NjQwODczOTI1S0

Report: Services for Youth with Disabilities Provided under Title I of the Workforce Investment Act: Results from a Survey of Local Workforce Investment Boards

On June 2, 2015, the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) Employment and Training Administration (ETA) issued this report in Training and Employment Notice (TEN) Number 32-14. The TEN provides information on recommended strategies and resources for increasing effective service delivery for youth with disabilities. Findings include that the majority of LWIBs have dedicated some level of resources to enhance their capacity to effectively serve youth with disabilities. Examples include appointing constituent advocates to the Workforce Investment Board or Youth Council, hiring staff dedicated to serving those with disabilities, conducting targeted outreach and/or providing specialized staff development or employer training. However, many LWIBs also make proactive efforts to expand their resource and stakeholder base through the formation of partnerships with other organizations. As an example, nearly nine out of 10 LWIBs have partnerships with both vocational rehabilitation (89 percent) and secondary schools and alternative schools (87 percent).

Integrated Resource Teams - Making Connections Job Seekers with Disabilities

This video highlights how the Disability Program Navigators (DPN) facilitated the establishment of an Integrated Resource Team (IRT) in Worksource Center, Portland, Oregon, and its applicability in American Job Centers nationwide. The IRT brings various partners (private and public, mandated and non-mandated) from a myriad of agencies/organizations (e.g., American Job Centers, Vocational Rehabilitation Agencies, mental health, developmental disabilities, etc.) across multiple systems to leverage resources, coordinate services/programs, and reduce duplication to better serve the individual customer with a disability and/or multiple employment challenges. The ultimate goal of the IRT is to get the person with a disability a job; not just any job but a quality, non-stereotypical job that provides a living wage, career lattice opportunities, benefits, and reflects the individual’s interests, experience, education/training goals, and desires. It also represents the blending and braiding of resources around an individual customer with a disability' to meet their employment needs. This video tells the story of how the IRT approach worked to assist a customer, who is deaf, receive training at his local community college and a paid internship, with the goal of finding a higher paying job.

Bazelon Center Report "Getting to Work: Promoting Employment of People with Mental Illness"

On September 10, 2014, the Bazelon Center released "Getting to Work: Promoting Employment of People with Mental Illness", a guide that details the benefits of getting people with serious mental illness into competitive employment through the use of supported employment services. Only about 1 in 10 people with a serious mental illness holds a full-time job. The statistic is not a reflection of lack of capacities or desires to be a part of the workforce: at least two-thirds want to work, and many have worked before. Employment has been widely recognized as a fundamental part of recovery and of community integration for people with serious mental illness. Yet, mental health systems have long operated under the mistaken assumption that people with serious mental illness cannot work. Getting to Work describes how supported employment services can change this, the successful outcomes they secure, the cost savings they produce for states, and how they enable states to fulfill their legal obligations under the Americans with Disabilities Act. It also offers recommendations to help states expand the availability of supported employment services for people with serious mental illness. To view the full report, please click on View Page Now or go to: http://www.bazelon.org/portals/0/Where%20We%20Stand/Community%20Integration/Olmstead/Getting%20to%20Work.pdf?utm_source=Getting to Work Report &utm_campaign=Getting to Work Report&utm_medium=email

MPR Report: National and State Program Participation Ratios for Working-Age People with Disabilities

Mathematica Policy Research (MPR) issued this report that contains national and state-level statistics on the number of participants in federal disability programs, drawn and produced from administrative data, relative to the estimated size of the working-age population with any self-reported disability based on the American Community Survey (ACS). For Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) combined, cross-state variation in the participation ratio is remarkably wide, with the two highest estimates (Massachusetts and New York) being more than twice as large as the lowest estimate (Alaska). There is also considerable variation across states in the distribution of participants across the three program categories (SSDI-only, SSI-only, and concurrent SSDI and SSI). The variation in combined Medicare and Medicaid participation across states follows a similar pattern as for SSDI and SSI, but is somewhat greater, mostly reflecting the extent to which each state’s Medicaid program covers individuals with disabilities who are neither SSDI nor SSI participants.
