ST. LOUIS (KPLR) - Starting Monday, March 24th, companies that do business with the federal government will be required to set goals to employ people with disabilities and keep track of their progress in doing so.

This may mean changes in personnel departments and in workplaces.

St. Louis-based Starkloff Disability Institute is working with the region`s major employers to understand the new requirements, which could include asking employees to self-identify any disabilities.
