October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month, the cornerstone of a national campaign to raise awareness about disability employment issues and to celebrate the contributions of workers with disabilities.
The Postal Service is joining other organizations across the United States in recognizing the contributions of employees with disabilities within its workforce.
The theme for this year’s campaign is “Inclusion drives Innovation.” The theme aligns with the Office of Disability Employment Policy’s campaign to promote successful employment for people with disabilities.
The U.S. Department of Labor offers a special site where you can learn more about disability employment awareness.
Employees also can find information about reasonable accommodation at the Postal Service by visiting the National Disability Program site.
