Do you know your rights to request accommodations in the workplace? Did you know that you even have rights to request accommodations to make your job more comfortable? I’ll be honest, I had no idea that I had these kinds of rights back when I wasn’t self-employed, and chances are you don’t aren’t in the know either. That’s why I can’t wait for you to listen to this episode where I talk all about this topic with Dr. Beth Loy, a Principal Consultant with the Job Accommodation Network (JAN), a free consulting service funded by the U.S. Department of Labor's Office of Disability Employment Policy. In this capacity, she leads JAN's external evaluation process and internal continuous improvement process, providing leadership to JAN's teams of service delivery and information systems. This includes JAN's outreach and education, training programs, and Website development. Beth has been with JAN since 1996 and is a member of the Management Team. Beth is a national researcher and speaker in the disability field and has a Ph.D. in Resource Economics with a specialization in social policy. At JAN, she provides research, writing, and statistics support regarding accommodation benefits and costs and the economic impact of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Beth is a member of the Rehabilitation Engineering and Assistive Technology Society of North America (RESNA). The Job Accommodation Network (JAN) is the leading source of free, expert, and confidential one-on-one guidance on reasonable accommodation (RA) in the workplace, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and related legislation, and disability employment issues. Working toward practical solutions that benefit both employer and employee, JAN helps people with disabilities enhance their employability and shows employers how to capitalize on the value and talent that people with disabilities add to the workplace. This is important, as disability impacts us all. One in five American adults has a disability. (US Census Bureau) JAN is one of several technical assistance services provided by the U.S. Department of Labor's Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP). Its development has been achieved through the collaborative efforts of ODEP, West Virginia University, and private industry throughout North America. https://askjan.org/index.cfm ASK JAN https://askjan.org/contact-us.cfm _____ If you'd like to connect about what you hear on Painiac, suggest a guest, sponsor the show, or make a donation, reach out at www.painiacpodcast.com.
