intends to develop programs to implement equal employment
opportunity for disabled workers and Vietnam era veterans.

such workers, while respecting the right to self-identification
and the retention of confidentiality.
As regards disabled
workers, special attention will be given to developing policies
on reasonable accommodation. Reasonable accommodation involves
removing barriers which prevent or limit employment opportunities
for eligible disabled persons, while not imposing undue hardship
upon the court.

groups will involve training of Trial Court employees. Such
training should address stereotypes members of these groups
may face which could limit their access to all jobs for which
they are qualified.
