This booklet consists of highlights of regulations issued by the United States Department of Labor, the Office of Civil Rights of the Department of Education, the Office of Personnel Management, and various other federal agencies regarding affirmative action in the hiring of the handicapped, especially persons who have recovered from mental or emotional illness. In this short narrative, the booklet introduces affirmative action and explains how it pertains to the employment of mentally restored people. It then covers the provisions of Sections 501, 503, 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and Section 402 of the Veterans Readjustment Assistance Act, especially as they apply to mentally restored people. The booklet then explains how employers should implement affirmative action, and contains procedures for persons who feel they have been discriminated against to file a complaint. (KC)
