ASA and U.S. Department of Labor Form Alliance to Increase Workforce Participation for Individuals With Disabilities

The American Staffing Association and the U.S. Department of Labor Office of Disability Employment Policy have formed an alliance to advance employment of people with disabilities in the staffing and recruiting industry. Each year, the industry employs an estimated 16 million temporary and contract workers in the U.S.

“Staffing is the perfect gateway to help Americans with disabilities to enter the world of work or to, perhaps, pursue a new occupation or career path,” said Richard Wahlquist, ASA president and chief executive officer. “ASA is honored to enter into this historic alliance with the U.S. Department of Labor Office of Disability Employment Policy to work together to provide our members with information and resources to create and promote inclusive workplaces for all.”

“America’s staffing companies play a crucial role in keeping the nation working, while also promoting workplaces that are flexible and inclusive,” said ODEP deputy assistant secretary Jennifer Sheehy. “We are delighted that ASA has joined our effort as we revive our economy and ensure that everyone—including people with disabilities—can work and succeed.”

Through this alliance, ODEP and ASA will collaborate to educate ASA member companies and aid them in creating inclusive workplaces for people with disabilities. Since 2006, ODEP’s alliance initiative has helped employer organizations develop and apply model policies and initiatives to increase the recruitment, hiring, retention, and career advancement of people with disabilities.
