This Act is designed to further promote the purpose of 16 Del. C. Chapter 96 (as amended). The intent is to advance the number of work opportunities made available to Delawareans with disabilities beyond those offered through State Use Law by presenting employers incentives to employ this under-represented workforce. State Use Law is a publically supported employment program that serves to create employment to qualified persons with disabilities. By virtue of this Act, the spirit and purpose of State Use as a means to develop the skills necessary to gain employment in the private sector will be further enhanced and more employment outcomes will be realized for the population of persons with disabilities served by Vocational Rehabilitation Agencies. This legislation is patterned on legislation enacted in 2012 (H.B. No. 275) which authorized a similar tax credit for employers hiring qualified veterans.
