Employment Incentives Manual: How to Motivate Businesses to Hire Individuals with Disabilities.
Schwartz, Phebe, Comp.
The manual provides information on incentives for employers and businesses hiring persons with special needs in rural areas. A list of facts is presented to dispel common myths employers may have regarding workers with disabilities. Monetary incentive programs, including federal/state programs and programs for specific disabling conditions, are reviewed. A section on resource information addresses such topics as income taxes and assistance/advocacy organizations. Job access and accommodation factors are considered as well as job placement information. Additional sections address small business ownership and self employment, computer training, employee incentives, films and videotapes on employment/accessibility, legislation related to employment aid training (including income maintenance legislation, transportation, and vocational rehabilitation). A listing of legal assistance agencies and three pages of references conclude the manual. (CL)
