The best, most motivated, and most reliable employees oftentimes have a disability. But they are sometimes overlooked and not given the chance they deserve to compete for available jobs. Many employers have found that hiring people with disabilities is not only the right thing to do, it’s also smart business.
UDS Employment Services is an employment service designed to meet the needs of local employers and individuals with disabilities. We do this by matching qualified applicants with employers who are looking for motivated, hard-working employees. Our candidates have skills in many areas: production, clerical, professional, sales, medical, retail, and others.
Our counselors also work closely with employers, providing free on-the-job training (if required) for new employees, advice on job accommodations and follow-up reviews to make sure that the individual is performing well. In addition to full-time employees, we can provide pre-screened interns and temps. And partial wage reimbursement may be available from the state.
UDS employment counselors work one-on-one with individuals through all phases of the employment process, from vocational assessment to job development to job maintenance. Many individuals qualify for government assistance and are referred to us by the Office of Vocational Rehabilitation. In addition to OVR client referrals, we also work with private individuals on customized programs.
UDS helps individuals in the following ways:
Any adult with a disability referred by the Office of Vocational Rehabilitation (OVR) is eligible for vocational services at no additional charge depending on OVR funding and UDS staff availability. Evaluation and placement services are arranged on an individual basis. UDS also works with private individuals on custom programs. At this time, only Lancaster County and City residents are eligible for government assistance through UDS.
