Hello folks! Yesterday I attended the Job Accommodation Network's webinar entitled "Ask the JAN Sensory Team" It dealt with everything from allergies to blindness: askjan.org/webcast/ They're not much help for people whose employer flouts the law. But for an employer who wants to be on the right side of history JAN can help them realize that time is now and make them take seriously an employee's accommodation request.

Webcast Training Schedule (2017/2018) The Job Accommodation Network (JAN) is the leading source of free, confidential, and practical information on workforce accommodations and the employment provisions of the Americans… askjan.org/webcast/

Hello dear NAIDW family. I'm not sure if this is the best way to do it, but I would like to post a warning that the Job Accommodation Network (askjan.org) may be hazardous to your mental health. I was booted off a webinar last week: They had open dialogue boxes and I diaglogued. When I followed up with their live chat, they shut me out at least three times. I thought what if someone were so distraught they became suicidal after being injured on the job, disability not accommodated, fired and then reached out to the Job Accommodation Network? While they have a good library of job accommodations, the people are utterly divorced from the reality of most disabled workers. I sure hope the suicide hotlines have better staff.

Greetings!
