Stay-at-Work and Return-to-Work

Establish State as a Model Employer Policies, Practices and Processes

States can send a clear message that employment and retention of people with disabilities is a high priority first by implementing a comprehensive set of policies, practices and processes, known collectively as State as a Model Employer policies, to increase representation of people with disabilities within their own public-sector workforce. When acting as model employers, the states also have an opportunity to serve as test cases for private employers, demonstrating the economic and organizational benefits of stay-at-work and return-to-work policies.
