DOL Launches Tool to Assist Employers in Improving E-Recruiting Process for Disabled Applicants

Posted Thursday, March 31, 2016 5:24 pm
The federal Department of Labor's Office of Disability Employment Policy has launched a free online tool to help employers ensure that disabled individuals are able to take advantage of web-based job applications and recruiting technologies.  Called "TalentWorks," the tool provides information on accessibility in the e-Recruiting process, as well as tip sheets for making online job applications, digital interviews, pre-employment tests and resume upload programs more accessible to disabled individuals.
"Inaccessible technology prevents people with disabilities from applying and interviewing for jobs, and limits the talent pool for employers," said Deputy Secretary of Labor Chris Lu. "The U.S. Department of Labor is committed to helping employers improve their recruitment and hiring processes. With resources like TalentWorks, employers can build a diverse, more inclusive workforce by ensuring their organization's virtual door is open to everyone."
