Allergies in the Workplace

Information about accommodating employees with allergies

JAN receives many questions about allergies and has developed resources to help employers, individuals with disabilities, and service providers learn what accommodations might help.

An allergy is an inflammatory reaction that occurs when a person ingests, inhales, or touches a substance to which their body’s immune system has become sensitized. Common allergens include foods such as peanuts and tree nuts, animal-related materials such as pet dander, and airborne substances such as pollen.
