Last day to comment on Labor Department’s possible rule change for disabled worker hiring

A proposed rule change by the Labor Department would give preference to contractors that hire disabled workers, Federal News Radio reports.

All comments on the proposed change must be submitted by Tuesday, according to a Labor Department notice.

The new rule would change the entire hiring process, said David Cohen, president of DCI Consulting Group.

“Not only do you have to find those individuals with disabilities, but you’re going to have to give them preference in the hiring process,” Cohen said.
