Webinar on Hiring People with Disabilities Slated
PIERRE, S.D. (AP) — South Dakota employers who want to start hiring people with disabilities can watch a webinar to learn more about the process and available resources.
The offering from the Department of Labor and Regulation and the South Dakota Retailers Association is scheduled for July 19.
It will offer insight about appropriate questions for potential employees, information about providing accommodations and a breakdown of resources available to employers.
Shawn Lyons is executive director of the retailers association. He says the program will explain first steps employers should take and show how businesses can benefit from a more diverse workforce.
Labor and Regulation Secretary Marcia Hultman says the agency can help businesses navigate the resources available to assure a good fit for individuals and employers.
