Despite decades of progress for disability employment protections and civil rights, it is still legal to pay people with disabilities less than minimum wage. Section 14(c) of the Fair Labor Standards Act has allowed employers to pay disabled workers subminimum wage for close to 90 years. Recent data has shown that disabled employees working under a 14(c) certificate earned an average of $3.34 per hour with many workers making even less than this.   

The American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD), the Autistic Self Advocacy Network (ASAN), and the National Council on Independent Living (NCIL) are hosting a webinar to discuss and educate the public on why advocacy is necessary to end this harmful practice and the actions you can take to support this important policy change.  

Target Audience: Everyone! Persons with disabilities, disability advocates, employers, family members of persons with disabilities. This event and a recording will be open to the public.  

If you need any accommodations, please contact NCIL’s Director of Advocacy and Public Policy Jessica Podesva at [email protected]. ASL and CART will be provided.
