We recognize there are challenges in understanding and complying with Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act. Having tools and resources to guide you through the process can be helpful but are often hard to come by. In an effort to combat this inaccessibility for federal contractors, NILG has partnered with Cornell University’s K. Lisa Yang and Hock E. Tan Institute on Employment and Disability to conduct a survey-based research project aimed to help in the design of new tools, resources and other assistance to support contractors with their compliance needs.
We would like to invite all human resources and legal professionals who are involved in the implementation of Section 503 regulations for their organization to participate in this study where you will be asked to anonymously provide information regarding the characteristics of your organization, your affirmative action goals, use of the voluntary Self-ID form and Section 503 implementation practices. Once the information has been compiled and analyzed,respondents will gain not only the final report, but also access to Cornell’s online benchmarking tool on workplace disability inclusion and six free online training courses with HRCI credit eligibility.
If you are interested in participating, please complete the survey at the following link byFriday, September 29: http://www.yti.cornell.edu/
We hope you will take advantage of this great opportunity to contribute to industry research and ultimately gain access to materials that may help you with your efforts. If you have any questions regarding this survey, please feel free to reach out to Sarah von Schrader at firstname.lastname@example.org.
