An evaluation of three separate pilot research projects in 2004 to investigate, develop, and validate strategies likely to yield the largest number of telework positions for returning veterans and people with disabilities.
"Workers with disabilities are an important and insufficiently tapped resource for employers. In recent years the federal government has strengthened its efforts to promote telework to help achieve increased employment opportunities for people with disabilities. To this end, the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP) funded three separate pilot research projects in 2004 to investigate, develop, and validate strategies likely to yield the largest number of telework positions for people with disabilities. This report synthesizes the findings and recommendations ... into one concise report. It is intended to provide direct input into the practices, policies and legislation that will be developed to assist people with disabilities move back into the workforce. Detailed findings from each project are contained within the individual project reports" (p. 6). (Abstractor: Author and Website Staff)
