I posted this question on an actual post but not sure if that was the appropriate place to ask so I'm asking here too! Can someone please explain to me, in layman's terms, what the difference is between codes 910 and 920? Both equal "employment" but I'm not understanding the difference in the "competitive" part of the language.


Thank you!!

Hi Kelly,
I assume you are familiar with the language of the CALPADS codes 910/920 and your question is in regards to how this would apply for students in or formerly in Special Ed. who are now in the workforce. (see bottom as I pasted the text from CALPADS for their definition you were referring to I believe)

The best I can understand is they are looking to see if the student is employed and working hours and getting paid like they were someone who applied for the job after walking in off the street, was qualified to do the job and was hired on even keel with anyone else working there. The fact that they were Special Ed. in school was not considered nor was relevant in the hiring process. Different than say a program where an employer specifically hires a disabled person maybe at less pay for a version of the job that has less duties due to physical limitations perhaps.

I by no means am an expert but that's my take at the intent of the code.
My suggestion would be to take the language of the code to your local HR or Workability person in your office to get their take on it though.

From CALPADS: Competitive employment means work (i) in the competitive labor market that is preformed on a full-time or part-time basis in an integrated setting; and (ii) for which an individual is compensated at or above minimum wage, but not less than the customary wage and level of benefits paid by the employer for the same or similar work performed by individuals who are not disabled.
