MAX Employment has developed the DES Employer Guide, a practical guide for employers to support employees with disability in the workplace.
As a provider of Disability Employment Services (DES) for over seven years, we understand that employers require workplace disability support and knowledge to maintain sustainable employment for candidates with disability.
Our DES Employer Guide assists with building disability confidence and provides information and support with any required workplace adjustments.
Further assistance and information on workplace adjustments can be accessed through www.jobaccess.gov.au. Modifications to the workplace are generally minimal and can ensure skilled participants have the opportunity to develop in their chosen occupation.
Our role as a DES provider is to work closely with our participants to determine employment preferences that align with their skills and abilities. This guide may not answer all questions, but it is a valuable resource can be used as practical guide to support sustainable employment.
The DES Employer Guide provides information on recruitment, workplace adjustments, and the benefits of employing people with disability. The guide also includes information on a range of disabilities to increase employer understanding and awareness.
