JobAccess is an Australian Government initiative that aids employers hiring or keeping an employee with disability. It is a free service that assists employers or workers with any disability needs such as aids in order to complete their job. There is access to the Employment Assistance Fund which will pay for any adjustments needed to accommodate people with disability.
Research shows us that people with disability take fewer days off, take less sick leave, have a higher retention rate than other workers and have fewer compensation incidents and accidents at work than other employees. One of the great benefits of JobAccess for employers is a greater understanding of, and access to, this valuable labour pool.
