Need Help on Workplace Accommodations in the Digital Age? Just Ask JAN
"Ask us. We can help." They are words that frequent the newly revamped website of the Job Accommodation Network (JAN), and for good reason.
Countless businesses of all sizes rely on JAN as the leading source of free, expert and confidential guidance on workplace accommodations and disability employment issues. It's the place to call with questions about productivity enhancements for your employees with disabilities, and a convenient gateway to publications, training and resources that can help you educate about disability in the workplace and capitalize on the talent of people with disabilities.
JAN's new website, AskJAN.org, features an attractive look and feel, plus a streamlined navigational structure and user experience. The result? An online destination that makes it easier than ever to find tools and resources on workplace accommodations, the Americans with Disabilities Act, assistive technology solutions, and more.
Some of JAN's signature resources include its "A-Z" list of accommodations, Workplace Accommodation Toolkit, online Training Center and comprehensive library of publications and articles. The website also enables you to live chat with a JAN consultant, or submit a question on demand. Of course, users can also email or telephone JAN the old-fashioned way for confidential, one-on-one advice from a JAN expert. JAN also offers the Mobile Accommodation Solutions (MAS) app, which can assist in managing accommodation requests from the palm of your hand. You can download the MAS app from the App Store or Google Play.
Funded by the Department of Labor's Office of Disability Employment Policy, JAN puts workplace accommodation assistance within easy reach. So just ask JAN. As advertised, they'll quickly prove that they can help!
