As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the share of the American workers who work remotely has increased from approximately 15% to about 50%. While that transition has required everyone to adjust, it has posed unique challenges for individuals with disabilities. What are those challenges? How are both the public and private sectors addressing them, and what more can be done? Part of the 2020 CSG National Conference Reimagined, this session explored those questions, developing a vision for more accessible and inclusive telework that not only accommodates but benefits individuals with disabilities.

The Council of State Governments Stay-At-Work/ Return-to-Work Webinar was held on Friday February 15th, 2019 from 10am-11am. The webinar focused on  how policy makers can use the CSG SAW/RTW Toolkit as a resource to initiate the development of state policy frameworks aimed at assisting workers in transitioning back to or staying at work following disability or injury incurred on the job. The panelists included Dr. Chris McLaren from the Department of Labor’s Office of Disability Employment Policy, Senator Becky Massey from Tennessee, Maryland’s Delegate Sheree Sample-Hughes, Beth Kuhn from the Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services, and Mr. Bobby Silverstein of Powers, Pyles, Sutter & Verville.
