FDWC News Hour: Procedures

In the 2012 report, Federal Agency Employment Strategies: A Framework for Disability Inclusion, the Office of Disability Employment Policy, U.S. Department of Labor outlines federal best practices for recruiting, hiring, and advancing people with disabilities. The Ensure Productivity recommendation describes an effective, no frills practice, so that all federal employees can perform at the highest of standards.

Providing reasonable accommodations combines effective written procedures for making and processing requests with a proactive and agile framework. Federal employees with disabilities are routinely informed of their rights to receive accommodations, and have the ability to learn about, select, accept, or reject accommodations to meet their unique needs.

NASA's Johnson Space Center (JSC) is located in Houston, Texas. JSC has set out to create a seamless process for accommodations, encouraging supervisors and employees alike to recognize the positive effect these can have on overall performance.

eFedLink staff will interview Janelle Holt, Diversity Program Manager, Office of Equal Opportunity and Diversity at NASA/Johnson Space Center about her agency’s philosophy, process and experiences, as profiled on the eFedLink Success Stories webpages.

JAN, the Job Accommodation Network, will share out some of the tools they have available to help federal agency employers with reasonable accommodations.

Presenters:
  • Akinyemi Banjo, ODEP, DOL
  • Alison Levy, OHRM, USDA
  • David Powell, EEO Specialist, Johnson Space Center, NASA
  • Nancy Hinkley, eFedLink
  • Tracie De Frietas, JAN

This webinar will explore some of the methods the Department of Labor has developed to make sure that everyone, including people with disabilities, can safely evacuate during an emergency. In addition we will focus on preparedness, emergency evacuation, communication, as well as some of the new practices being developed by emergency managers and individuals with disabilities.
