Given all the troubles in the world, I hope you and yours are well!

Not only was this a very exciting week because President Obama signed WIOA, starting on January 1, 2015 all Federal contractors will need to follow Rule 503, which asks for 7{31ab897a4370feb218155abc15d7b38f5bba01528a749bd66fe114ec092a63fc} of their employees in all job categories to be people with disabilities. This is very good news on inclusion. So what are the rules? Go HERE to see.

If you want to hear a webinar on this go HERE.

Also, if you want to know what companies in your area get federal government grants, and thus need to follow the rule and have inclusive workforces, go to You can get an easy to use list of all the companies who will be looking to hire and/or identify employees with disabilities!

All the best,

Jennifer Laszlo Mizrahi

P.S. Happy ADA Anniversary!
