The below section will discuss everything you need to know about supported employment, its different models, as well as support methods.
Supported employment is a result. It allows an individual to earn a livelihood within an integrated employment scenario. The “Fair Labor Standards Act” declares that supported employees must be paid commensurate wages. In addition to this, the benefit package offered to eligible employees must also be available to supported employees.
Through this process, an individual who would otherwise be unable to engage in competitive work because of the severity of their disability will have the choice to secure and retain a full or part-time job in a competitive environment. These are some of the characteristics that distinguish supported employment from the regular types of competitive jobs: intensive interim and extended support phases, which include individual or community support, as well as job specific.
