For People With Disabilities in the Federal Government
The purpose of this guide is to provide information about laws and issues that affect the employment of people with disabilities in the Federal Government. The guide also contains information regarding the roles and responsibilities of various organizations, a glossary of terms, a discussion of hiring issues and authorities, facts about reasonable accommodation, and tips for working with people with disabilities and integrating them into the workforce. The guide is not intended to be a substitute for legal advice or interpretation of the laws (readers are encouraged to seek legal counsel for their specific questions). The guide, therefore, serves as an overview of the various issues as well as provides the reader with a list of resources, including legal citations, that affect the employment of people with disabilities in Federal service.
