COVID-19 related workplace issues vary widely. While JAN does not provide public health, safety, or legal advice, it does offer Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliance assistance and practical job accommodation strategies for returning individuals with disabilities to work during the COVID-19 pandemic. To address the needs of employers, individuals with disabilities, and their family members, JAN created a website dedicated to COVID-19 resources.
JAN’s webpage of useful resources surrounding the complexities of COVID-19 can be accessed here.
These strategies can enable workers with disabilities to return to the work environment, work at home, or access leave when other accommodations are not reasonable. A few examples of resources available on JAN’s COVID-19 Resource page include:
Requesting and Negotiating Accommodations During the Pandemic
Coronavirus (COVID-19), Stress, and Mental Health Conditions
COVID-19 and the Family and Medical Leave Act Questions and Answers
Vaccination Considerations for Persons with Underlying Medical Conditions
JAN adds new resources frequently; you are encouraged to check the website regularly to access the most up-to-date information.
