The Arc Urges Government to Hire More People with Developmental Disabilities

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Arc submitted comments to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) on Wednesday, calling on the federal government to become a model employer of people with disabilities, including individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD).“While the last few years have seen some modest increases in the numbers of people with disabilities employed by the federal government, The Arc remains deeply concerned that many people with the most significant disabilities, including jobseekers with intellectual and developmental disabilities, are being left behind,” said Peter V. Berns, Chief Executive Officer of The Arc.
