The retail sector includes all exchanges of goods and services. Retail can include the purchase of goods like clothes, electricity, water, groceries, prescriptions, convenience items, and vehicles. Retail workstations vary greatly and equipment is available to assist workers with disabilities in performing their job functions. It's common that equipment involves using the computer, talking with a customer, or facilitating a sale. For these types of situations, a job accommodation may involve modifying the way an essential job function is typically done and can include purchasing one or more pieces of equipment. Here are some examples of equipment that JAN suggests for these situations. For additional information, visit JAN's other resources under A to Z and use JAN's Searchable Online Accommodation Resource (SOAR) or contact JAN directly for what you are needing.
