    State Employee Rights

    One of ICED’s roles is to inform State employees with disabilities about rights and resources through this website, publications, and educational programs. This site provides information about reasonable accommodations​ and finding a state job.


The Inte​ragency Committee on Employees with Disabilities (ICED) was created by statute ​in 1974 to support State of Illinois employees with disabilities. 

The Committee holds regular meetings to plan activities that promote and expand access, opportunity, and independence within State employment. The Committee is a forum for the dissemination of information on disability matters and as a place where issues of general concern for State of Illinois employees with disabilities can be raised. 

Learn more about current ICED members​, how qualifying State of Illinois employees can join the Committee, or how to participate in a meeting.  The Committee can be reached by visiting the Contact Us​​ page.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
