Workforce Survey Results: State of Alaska as a Model Employer for People with Disabilities

Alaska

A 2011 state survey found that the number of state employees with disabilities mirrored the general population. The state found that it  could further its support of employees with disabilities by improving training for managers and supervisors around the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Amendments Act of 2008 and educating workers about their rights and responsibilities under ADA.
