Employment

Local businesses who understand the value of a diverse workforce bring us one step closer to becoming the most disability-friendly community in the country. We recognize people with disabilities whose work keeps our nation's economy strong and reaffirms equal opportunity for all citizens. Diverse and inclusive opportunities are built from a naturally supportive culture - creating an environment of success for both the employee and employer.

Disability discrimination occurs when an employer or other entity covered by the Americans with Disabilities Act, as amended, or the Rehabilitation Act, as amended, treats a qualified individual with a disability who is an employee or applicant unfavorably because he or she has a disability.

WORKING BETTER TOGETHER
The Ability Center, Goodwill Industries, Lott Industries, and the Epilepsy Center have come together in a partnership to support a job exploration and employment project that actively promotes individuals with disabilities as employment candidates to Toledo Rotary membership. Together these four organizations prioritize clients for work in the community and streamline communications by selecting one person representing all four organizations to coordinate the supports and resources needed for a successful placement.
