WORKING LIFE FOR THE DISABLED
It is often tougher to find jobs for the disabled since there are a very small number of spaces that offer any leniency in their job roles. However, disability employment services can efficiently guide one towards jobs that can suit them the best with the kind of disabilities one has.
Most of the time, it’s perceived that disabled persons should perform menial jobs that can provide for their life as much as possible since they cannot perform great things. It is incorrect and discriminatory to think so since disabled people can perform as good or better than abled people in any field. There are multiple opportunities for the disabled in so many work cultures where their work is appreciated and taken seriously. Such jobs might be tough to find by oneself. Disability employment services can easily perform this process and provide the best options possible within their limits.
Disability employment services research the candidate’s disability to find out more about their strengths and weaknesses to help them find a job better. This research gives them a better insight into the person’s disabilities, and understanding it helps in fitting them into an appropriate space. They can also effectively help them enhance their abilities to suit certain jobs and accommodate them without stress. They are also placed inside spaces that are not discriminative and value them as an important company employee. This is necessary for an employee’s feelings and respect.
How employers approach employees:
Firstly, members are assessed for eligibility for this service since minor injuries cannot qualify as a disability. This process is performed by a very efficient individual or teams who prepare the person according to need. They also need to be counselled to understand that they are of value and can provide well in any sector since many stick to routine jobs well below their capabilities due to demotivation from their disabilities. Employers usually approach these services if they are on the lookout for employing disabled workers. After consulting and taking the concerned disabled person’s consent and approval to perform at this job, this can then be taken forward.
Age and working hour requirements:
Job seekers are also required to be at least 14 years of age to go through the DES and find a job. There are many considerations for minor pupils to provide for better lives at their young ages. Some services also offer work for anyone above the retirement age if they can still work efficiently. Depending on age, disability, and other factors, DES also determines how long one can qualitatively work and be productive. Since many employees can be minors working and studying simultaneously, their education is of major concern. They are provided appropriate working hours bent according to their school schedules, so their education is not interrupted.
DES also supports them throughout their lives and constantly monitors their jobs to provide them with better opportunities. This kind of care and support goes a long way and builds a relationship with the job seekers reassuring and comforting them. They also process plans for those who are very young or are not capable of doing it themselves.
This confusion is easily solved by providing them with a variety of jobs they could perform and letting them choose what they would like to voice out their likes and dislikes and follow their passion effectively.
