“HB 2336 creates the Kansas Employment First Initiative Act and the Kansas Employment First Oversight Commission. The bill requires state programs and services that support employment of persons with disabilities to consider, as their first option, competitive and integrated employment for persons with disabilities. The bill does not require an employer to give preference to hiring persons with a disability.
“The bill requires all state agencies to follow the policy for employment by coordinating and collaborating efforts among agencies. In addition, agencies may share data and information whenever possible across systems in order to track progress. State agencies may adopt rules and regulations to implement the Act.”
