Does your business need qualified, capable workers?
NYSCB's Vocational Rehabilitation Program offers a pool of talented, reliable people who are trained in a variety of different fields, including hospitality, manufacturing, and office management. Your business can also qualify for tax incentives when you hire workers with disabilities.
Is there an employee at your workplace who is losing their sight or is legally blind?
NYSCB's Vocational Rehabilitation Program can provide them with technical assistance to adapt to their new impairment without sacrificing their career. NYSCB counselors work with employees and employers to obtain the appropriate adaptive equipment, mobility training, or reader services that can assist blind employees in retaining their position and performing job duties efficiently.
