They are –not– hiring today!

 The Job Accommodation Network 

The Job Accommodation Network (JAN) offers one-on-one guidance on workplace accommodations, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and related legislation, and self-employment and entrepreneurship options for people with disabilities.

Please note: We are an information and referral resource – we are not here as an employer and do –-not-– provide job placement services.

We provide services to:

  • Employers
  • Individuals with disabilities
  • Service providers
  • Friends, family, coworkers
  • Anyone else who has questions about workplace accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act

If you aren’t able to chat with us during this event, feel free to contact us via phone, email, or social networks.
