California’s Employment First Policy (AB 1041)
Informational material to help educate individuals and families.

In 2013 California’s Employment First Policy (AB 1041) was passed and signed into law by Governor Brown. One of the requirements of that law was that the State Council on Developmental Disabilities (SCDD) would develop informational material to help educate individuals and families about the state’s Employment First policy. The flyer by SCDD has been completed and is now available by clicking on the links below (other languages should be available soon). SCDD is also working on enhancing a website on this topic, which can be found at the link below.
