Sharon Masling, Chief of Staff to Commissioner Chai Feldblum, EEOC

A person's disability can range from the difficult to detect like Attention Deficit Disorder to the more apparent, like loss of a limb or blindness. Now employers have a go-to guide to answer all their questions on hiring and equipping those with disabilities. A product of the "Curb Cuts to the Middle Class Initiative," the plain-language guide brings together a host of resources from across the government. Sharon Masling is Chief of Staff to Equal Employment Opportunity Commissioner Chai Feldblum, who has been a leader in the Curb Cuts Initiative. She joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to explain more of what's in the new guide.

Jenny Yang, Chairwoman, EEOC

About 12 percent of federal employees say they have disabilities. The hiring of more has become a focal point of the Obama administration. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission just wrapped up a month of focusing on this issue, during which it published guidance for agencies, hosted a Twitter town hall and launched a new data collection effort. New EEOC Chairwoman Jenny Yang told Federal News Radio's Emily Kopp the agency is trying to help the government be a model employer of people with disabilities, while it does a better job itself.

Carlton Hadden, Equal Employment Opportunity Commission

Federal agencies are too quick to dismiss employee discrimination charges, according to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. The EEOC reversed a third of all cases dismissed by agencies between 2008 and 2012 without investigations or hearings. The agency received more than 1,500 dismissal appeals in fiscal 2012, and remanded nearly 700 back to agencies. Carlton Hadden is director of the Office of Federal Operations for the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. He joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to discuss what federal managers can do to avoid having decisions overturned.
