Disability Management Employer Coalition


Here is a great resource (Disability Management Employer Coalition) passed along to me by Joe Hamilton, the state’s Return to Work Program Manager.  Thanks, Joe!
There is a lot of information available to non-members, including archived webinars on a variety of relevant employment-related topics such as FMLA, ADA, return to work, etc.  If you scroll down from their home page, you’ll find some of the recently archived webinars.
Have a safe and Happy New Year.
