JAN provides this information as a way to share accommodation situations and solutions from meat packing industry related jobs. For a more in depth discussion, contact JAN directly.

Situations and Solutions:

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, food processing occupations include many different types of workers who process raw food products into the finished goods sold by grocers, wholesalers, restaurants, or institutional food services. These workers perform a variety of tasks and are responsible for producing many of the food products found in every household. The majority of these individuals work in the meatpacking industry. For new workers with disabilities, and as our working population ages, it is imperative to consider providing job accommodations to enhance the productivity of these valuable workers.
