Episode 49: The Process of Customized Employment
October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM). This month’s episode of ADA Live! will talk about Customized Employment, a flexible process that personalizes the employment relationship by hiring a job seeker with a disability to meet the specific needs of an employer in a way that benefits both the employer and job seeker, regardless of pre-existing job descriptions. This episode will discuss the process of Customized Employment, including the job search, negotiations, and how this benefits businesses. We will also highlight resources that are available to help employers best implement Customized Employment.
