The JAN Research Project

Since 2008, School of Social Work Professor Dr. Helen Hartnett has been leading a research team conducting surveys and compiling a large database on behalf of the Morgantown-based Job Accommodation Network (JAN). The Job Accommodation Network (JAN) is a free service funded by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Disability Employment Policy. JANprovides information on workplace accommodations to employers and individuals, as well as guidance for people with disabilities looking to establish their own businesses. An integral part of this service is explaining the rights of employees with disabilities under the Americans with Disabilities Act, as well as other relevant laws.
