OFCCP Video: Disability Inclusion Starts with You!

The Department of Labor's (DOL) Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP), has released this video encouraging individuals with disabilities to voluntarily self-identify. The video explains why companies doing business with the federal government ask job applicants and employees to voluntarily self-identify if they have a disability, and the important role that self-identifying plays in ensuring equal employment opportunity for people with disabilities. OFCCP, as part of its ongoing efforts to support greater self-identification by individuals with disabilities, created this video to explain why voluntary self-identification is a good thing. Contractors may wish to download and post this video on their Intranet or company Web sites to share with their employees and job applicants who may be reluctant to self-identify, or who may not understand why they are being asked to self-identify. Disability organizations and community groups may also wish to share the video with their members to encourage them to voluntarily self-identify when invited to do so by an employer that is a federal contractor.

The National Employer Policy, Research and Technical Assistance Center for Employers on the Employment of People with Disabilities (Employer TA Center) recently published a new fact sheet for employers summarizing tax incentives for which employers who employ people with disabilities may be eligible.

GAO Report on TANF: Action Is Needed to Better Promote Employment-Focused Approaches

The Government Accountability Office (GAO) issued this report, GAO-15-31, on Dec. 19, 2014, which focused on the Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) program and state agency efforts to support TANF beneficiaries enter or return to employment. Of the 10 programs GAO examined, 9 drew on the expertise of partner organizations— including community college systems, workforce agencies, and nonprofits. The programs also benefitted from decisions by state and local policymakers to dedicate funds—including TANF funds—for the selected programs. However, many program design and funding choices are left to the states, and GAO’s prior work has shown that state use of TANF funds for more costly welfare-to-work approaches can compete with other allowable uses of TANF funds. Second, TANF’s main performance measure does not necessarily encourage agencies to use certain approaches that incorporate longer-term education and training or treatment services. Third, little incentive exists for TANF agencies to evaluate their programs. HHS’s authority over many aspects of TANF is limited and it has not proposed legislative changes to address these areas. Without federal action, adoption and evaluation of promising approaches may continue to be limited to select states and localities, leaving TANF recipients in other locations without access to these promising approaches.

January CoP Theme: Tools and Resources for Financial Health Support to AJC Customers

The Disability and Employment Community of Practice is focusing January on asset development and financial health strategies made available through American Job Centers (AJCs(, including financial capability training and free tax preparation. Since the inception of the Department of Labor’s Disability Employment Initiative (DEI), a primary focus of grant activities has been directed to asset development in the understanding that employment stability and retention is frequently dependent upon the individual’s ability to manage income. This is particularly the case for individuals with disabilities or other significant challenges to employment who often enter or return to work in low wage positions that provide minimal income to sustain the fundamental needs of housing, transportation, food and health care. Individuals with disabilities receiving benefits are additionally in need of benefits planning advice that has often been incorporated in the DEI Disability Resource Coordinator skills made available in grantee workforce investment areas. DEI’s Technical Assistance provided by the National Disability Institute has developed resources and tools to assist grantees as well as the workforce system at-large. These include a number of asset development 30 Second Trainings which can be very helpful in introducing financial well-being to AJC customers. To access these trainings, please click on View Page Now or go to: https://disability.workforce3one.org/page/tag/1001315838823672830 Please continue to check the Disability and Employment CoP throughout January for other asset development resources.
