 Full Description: 
The Job Accommodations Network (JAN) has developed a set of “fact sheets” that explain issues related to employment and people with disabilities. Each fact sheet has a few paragraphs and bulleted points explaining the basics of the topic, then a list of places where people can go for more information including websites and print resources. The many fact sheets are organized according the following categories:

By disability
JAN's fact sheet series by disability is designed to provide readers with a quick overview of the limitations associated with specific medical conditions and accommodation ideas for those limitations.

For example, there is a fact sheet titled:
Job accommodations for people with cerebral palsy (askjan.org/media/employmentcpfact.doc)


By occupation or industry
JAN's fact sheet series by occupation or industry is designed to provide readers with a quick overview of the issues associated with specific occupations or industries and accommodation ideas for people with disabilities working in those occupations or industries.

For example, there is a fact sheet titled:
Self-employment for artists with disabilities (askjan.org/entre/pubs/entre_artists.doc)


By other topics
JAN's fact sheet series by topic is designed to provide readers with a quick overview of various topics associated with the employment of people with disabilities.

For example, there are fact sheets titled:
Disability etiquette in the workplace (askjan.org/media/employmentetifact.doc), and

Dealing with hygiene problems in the workplace (askjan.org/media/employmenthygienefact.doc)


ADA and related laws
JAN's fact sheet series on the ADA and related laws is designed to provide readers with a quick overview of legal issues related to the employment of people with disabilities.

For example, there is a fact sheet titled:
Sample reasonable accommodation request form for employers (http://askjan.org/media/raemployersform.htm)
