Housekeeping: How JAN Webcasts Work
Registrations are for a single computer, not a person. Any number of people may participate at that computer through the single Web link provided by the registration. However, one registration allows you one login, which includes the e-mail with which you register and a password given three to five business days prior to the scheduled event.

- Description: No employer looks forward to telling an employee that he has body odor or that his appearance is unacceptable, but the alternative is disrupting the work flow when coworkers cannot work with the bad odor or customers opting not to do business with you because your employee is not presentable. This training will provide participants with the tools needed to have productive conversations with employees with hygiene issues and to explore reasonable accommodations when the employees in question have disabilities. Join experienced consultants from the Job Accommodation Network (JAN) who will share their experience helping employers deal with sensitive, often disability-related, workplace issues.
- Speakers: Linda Carter Batiste, J.D., and Beth Loy, Ph.D., JAN Principal Consultants.
- Handouts: Presentation Slides (.pptx)
- Description: With the recent implementation of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), as well as continued efforts by employers to increase diversity and promote inclusive business practices, a discussion on “transition” services is a timely topic. This webcast will offer an overview of the transition process, which helps individuals with disabilities navigate their way from the school system to the world of work or to post-secondary education or training. Additional topics to be discussed include self-advocacy, disability disclosure, sufficient medical documentation, employer engagement, and types of accommodations that might be needed.
- Speakers: Elisabeth Simpson, M.S., Lead Consultant, Motor Team, and Melanie Whetzel, M.A., JAN Lead Consultant, Cognitive/Neurological Team.
- Handouts: Presentation Slides (.ppt).
- Description: Individuals with disabilities may have different types of limitations that may affect the ability to take tests or access training materials.
