Recruitment & retention of state employees with disabilities
2/9/2022 5:19:22 PM
HF2017 will be heard by the State Government Finance and Elections committee. This bill will strengthen Minnesota statutes concerning employees with disabilities. The new language aims to ensure hiring agencies are aware of the accommodation fund, increase the number of ADA coordinators, and to shorten the average time for employees hired through Connect 700 (a trial work program) to begin receiving the same benefits as other employees.
Eric Nooker, a deaf state employee, will be testifying at the hearing in support of the bill. Another state employee, Dr. Mohamed (Mourssi) Alfash, submitted a letter in support of the bill. Dr. Alfash also serves on the MNCDHH board.
Please attend and support this bill.
