More disability employment support

Published

The Australian Government today announced an expanded list of independent assessors, available to assess appropriate workplace adjustments for people with disability. These assessments, which will be provided free of charge, enable people with disability and their employers to access government funding to pay for reasonable adjustments to a workplace so a person with disability can commence or keep a job. The assessors will exercise expert judgement in making appropriate and accurate workplace assessments for people with disability, Disability Services Assistant Minister, Jane Prentice said.
