Disability Employment Resource

The US Department of Labor Office of Disability Employment Policy offers a Job Accommodation Network (JAN) website that centralizes information on finding employment, and on employing people with disabilities.  Their Kidney Disease page includes links to:

  • A list of Accommodation Resources
  • A list of relevant organizations
  • Information for both individuals and employers
  • Relevant publications, resources, searches, FAQs, trainings, and other topics
  • Free technical assistance and confidential consultations
