Have you heard of the Job Accommodation Network (JAN)? According to their website:

The Job Accommodation Network (JAN) is the leading source of free, expert, and confidential guidance on workplace accommodations and disability employment issues. Working toward practical solutions that benefit both employer and employee, JAN helps people with disabilities enhance their employability, and shows employers how to capitalize on the value and talent that people with disabilities add to the workplace.

JAN’s trusted consultants offer one-on-one guidance on workplace accommodations, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and related legislation, and self-employment and entrepreneurship options for people with disabilities. Assistance is available both over the phone and online. Those who can benefit from JAN’s services include private employers of all sizes, government agencies, employee representatives, and service providers, as well as people with disabilities and their families.

JAN is one of the best resources to have bookmarked on your computer, with their phone number on speed dial. Check out their website for great resources and call or email them with specific questions about job accommodations. An excellent resource.

Have you used JAN or recommended it to anyone else? What's your experience with JAN?
