Please join the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Apprenticeship (OA) for an Apprenticeship Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) webinar on encouraging self-identification of a disability by apprentices.  Experts from the Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) and the Employer Assistance and Resource Network on Disability Inclusion (EARN) will share best practices to help sponsors implement disability self-identification.

Description

Hear from the voices of experience!  Presenters will review the new requirement to invite apprentices and applicants for apprenticeship to self-identify as being an individual with a disability; describe effective strategies for encouraging voluntary disability self-identification; and answer sponsors’ questions on the topic.  Speakers from OFCCP and EARN will share tips and best practices from the experiences of employers that have already implemented disability self-identification.  This webinar will help sponsors successfully implement the voluntary disability self-identification invitation process and maximize the participation of apprentices and applicants in that process.
