EEOC releases two reports on the federal workforce and disabilities

Posted on March 21, 2024

  • The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) released two reports on people with disabilities in the federal workforce.
  • One report focuses on the impact of telework on Personal Assistance Services (PAS), and how agencies changed their PAS programs during the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • PAS are supports given to people with certain disabilities, like deafness or paralysis, to help them do major life activities, like eating and taking care of themselves, during work hours.
  • The other report looks at how government agencies hire people using Schedule A, and what is working well. Schedule A lets federal agencies hire people with certain disabilities without needing them to go through the usual competitive hiring process.
