The Job Accommodation Network (JAN), the leading source of free, expert and confidential guidance on workplace accommodations and disability employment issues, has developed an online tool to help U.S. businesses successfully recruit, hire and retain applicants and employees with disabilities. The newest addition to JANs suite of products, the Workplace Accommodation Toolkit packages JANs deep knowledge into an online platform with the information businesses need to create inclusive workplaces while complying with disability-related employment laws.
“Recently JAN has seen an increase in requests for guidance related to the reasonable accommodation process and creating disability-inclusive workplaces. The Toolkit was designed to respond to these requests,” said Lou Orslene, JAN co-director. It includes sample accommodation procedures, examples of policies and forms from leading U.S. businesses, training presentations, roleplay videos and best practices for creating an inclusive workplace for people with disabilities. The Toolkit provides inclusive practices at various phases of the employment life cycle for recruiters, hiring managers, and supervisors; human resource professionals; accommodation consultants; and allies of employees with disabilities. Checklists are also available to help keep track of the accommodation process.
The JAN Workplace Accommodation Toolkit was developed in consultation with Deb Dagit, from Deb Dagit Diversity, Inc. The JAN Workplace Accommodation Toolkit can be accessed at: http://AskJAN.org/toolkit
This Toolkit release coincides with National Disability Employment Awareness Month #NDEAM
