The U.S. Department of Labor has launched its online Workplace Flexibility Toolkit to provide employees, job seekers, employers, policymakers, and researchers with information, resources, and a unique approach to workplace flexibility.
Funded by the department’s Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP) in partnership with the department’s Women’s Bureau (WB), the toolkit makes more than 170 resources easily accessible, particularly for workers and job seekers with complex employment situations, such as parents of young children, single parents, family caregivers, mature workers, at-risk youth, ex-offenders, and individuals with disabilities, including veterans with disabilities and people with HIV/AIDS.
The toolkit, which can be accessed at http://www.dol.gov/odep/workplaceflexibility/, points visitors to case studies, fact and tip sheets, issue briefs, reports, articles, websites with additional information, other related toolkits, and a list of FAQs. New information will be added to the Workplace Flexibility Toolkit as it is identified.
The launch of the toolkit coincides with National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM).
