For employers and human resource specialists, Disability.gov has resources about recruiting and hiring people with disabilities , providing accommodations for employees with disabilities and employment laws and regulations . Information about tax benefits for employers who hire and retain people with disabilities is also available. State-specific employment information can be found by visiting Disability.gov’s Employment section, choosing “Search State Resources Only,” and then, selecting a state from the map or drop-down menu on the page.
