Career Point Mendocino, in conjunction with local service providers, is holding an employer forum in Ukiah on Tuesday, Oct. 16, from 9 to 10:30 a.m. at the Mendocino Community Foundation, 204 S. Oak St.
Employers, local business owners and the public are invited to come and explore the benefits workers with disabilities can bring to the workplace. Come hear what local employers like Crush, Walmart and Mountain View have to say, and learn about local resources that can benefit your business such as a $10,400 per year paid internship that can go toward wages and payroll costs, the Work Opportunity Tax Credit, reasonable accommodation myths and support, and free on-the-job coaching assistance for certain individuals.
Bring your human resource or fiscal team and meet your local subject matter experts while learning about how these programs are designed for local businesses like yours. To register for the forum, visit https://www.eventbrite.com/e/employer-forum-tickets-50929412243 or just drop by. For more information, call 707-467-5900.
