The Job Accommodation Network (JAN) is a free service of the Office of Disability Employment Policy, U.S. Department of Labor. JAN has two main focuses, identifying job accommodations and providing technical assistance on the employment provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). While not a job placement service, JAN receives questions from people with disabilities looking for work.

This tool, Finding a Job that is Right for You: A Practical Approach to Looking for a Job as a Person with a Disability, provides a four-step process for conducting a successful job search.  Within the online tool, users will find information about the current job market; templates for identifying your skills, abilities, and knowledge related to the job you are seeking; information about building a resume and interviewing; and a list of programs and job banks that can help an individual with a disability to find that perfect job.” 

Situations and Solutions:

The following situations and solutions are real-life examples of accommodations that were made by JAN customers. Because accommodations are made on a case-by-case basis, these examples may not be effective for every workplace but give you an idea about the types of accommodations that are possible.
