Description

Did you know?

  • 53 million Americans have a disability
  • 1 in 4 of us will be disabled in our working lifetime

As part of our ongoing workforce development efforts, SEDC is partnering with The Workforce Diversity Network of the Black Hills to help you better understand the importance of retaining an employee that reveals a disability or becomes disabled. With a very tight labor market, keeping good employees and identifying opportunities to hire individuals with disabilities is a must.

As a business owner, do you know where to find accommodations if an employee becomes disabled? A better question might be, do you know what the guidelines are regarding disabilities, leave of absence from an injury or sickness according to the State and Federal laws? Kathleen R. Barrow is an expert attorney in employment law and voted as one of 40 Best Employment Lawyers in America 2013- 2019. With almost 3 decades of helping employers, she will bring you up to speed on the latest laws, answer questions and make sure you have a better understanding of compliance and programs. Kathleen is a member of South Dakota Bar association along with Texas, Oklahoma, North Dakota, and Nebraska.

Join us as we provide you with a free lunch and help you learn about the importance of retaining and how to accommodate an employee that reveals a disability or becomes disabled.
