EmployAbility: A Toolkit for Employers

New York

“This handbook is meant to provide you with the information you need to begin employing people of all abilities, including financial and tax incentives, how and why hiring people of all abilities is good for your business and where to find qualified employees….

The Employability Toolkit was compiled by a consortium of New York State agencies and disability organizations to assist you. We are joined by the New York State Business Leadership Network, New York’s chapter of the US Business Leadership Network® (USBLN®), a national non-profit that helps business drive performance by leveraging disability inclusion in the workplace, supply chain, and marketplace.”
