Share this page

The Department of Labor (DOL) is giving the disability community extra time to comment on its online national dialogue on 14(c) certificates – the original deadline of June 14th has been extended to June 21st. As a reminder, those who wish to participate in the dialogue need to register to be able to access the website, although a call option has been added if needed. Instructions to register are available here.

As shared by the Department of Labor:

“The U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP), through its ePolicyWorks initiative, is currently hosting the Section 14(c) National Online Dialogue until Friday, June 21 to gather perspectives on Section 14(c) of the Fair Labor Standards Act. We invite you to join the conversation and share your ideas and comments regarding local trends, experiences with transition, and visions for the future regarding Section 14(c) and the employment of people with disabilities.

Our goal is to capture perspectives about Section 14(c) based on individual input from those “on the ground.” The information gathered during this online dialogue will provide ODEP with an opportunity to better understand the current landscape, as well as the opportunities and challenges experienced by those who have transitioned away from Section14 (c) certificates, and ideas for future policies. This online event is open to all. We strongly encourage everyone to participate including individuals with disabilities, their families, providers, disability organizations, employers, researchers, and other stakeholders who have experience with or opinions about Section 14(c).”
