Employers are sometimes concerned about the costs of providing job accommodations for workers with disabilities. However, a study by the Job Accommodation Network (JAN) found that such accommodations are low cost and have additional positive benefits on the workplace. These benefits include retaining valuable employees, improving productivity, boosting morale, reducing workers' compensation and more. Employers that participated in the study reported that many job accommodations cost nothing to make, with the rest typically only costing $500. Read the report to learn more and find out how JAN can assist employers in making job accommodations free of charge.
