Michigan Executive Directive 2014-1: Employment Opportunities

Michigan

“It is important that the State of Michigan provide a welcoming environment to those with disabilities and encourage their employment in state government in a competitive integrated setting. While many individuals desire that their disability be kept confidential, raising awareness and providing adequate training to all state employees can help bridge the gap to ensure every employee is treated with dignity and respect at all times.”
 
“In coordination with the Department of Civil Rights, the Civil Rights Commission and the Civil Service Commission, the SEODC shall recommend a program for attracting and retaining individuals with mental illness, intellectual or developmental disabilities and physical disabilities that includes competitive integrated employment opportunities. The program shall require the participation and engagement of all Executive Branch departments and agencies.”
