October 22, 2015, 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM

Each year, millions of workers in the United States lose their jobs or leave the workforce after their ability to work has been disrupted by a medical condition. Keeping these workers in the labor force could help them maintain their standard of living; stay productive; and avoid dependency on Social Security Disability Insurance, Medicare, and other federal programs.

As part of the Stay-at-Work/Return-to-Work Policy Collaborative - funded by the U.S. Department of Labor's Office of Disability Employment Policy - three expert-led policy workgroups have developed actionable policy recommendations to help workers keep their jobs if they experience a potentially career-ending medical condition. At this forum, the leaders of each workgroup will share their insights and address the central question: How can we reduce the number of workers who eventually lose their jobs due to a medical condition?


SPEAKER PANEL:

- Yonatan Ben-Shalom, Mathematica (moderator)
- Jennifer Christian, Webility Corporation
- Kevin Hollenbeck, W.E. Upjohn Institute
- David Stapleton, Mathematica
- Jennifer Sheehy, U.S. Department of Labor, Office of Disability Employment Policy (discussant)
