No, JAN is not a female! Instead, JAN stands for the Job Accommodation Network, a service provided by the U.S. Department of Labor's Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP). JAN helps businesses provide accommodations for people with disabilities. Its website (https://askjan.org) lists dozens of specific medical and physical problems and then provides ideas for possible accommodation solutions. JAN also has consultants who can give one-on-one consultations with business owners or employees to help solve issues relating to the Americans with Disabilities ACT (ADA) and workplace accommodations.
