The Job Accommodation Network (JAN) recently released the annual data for its ongoing study on the cost of workplace accommodations, revealing that the majority (59 percent) of workplace accommodations cost nothing, while for those that do, the typical small expenditure pays for itself multiple-fold in the form of reduced insurance and training costs and increased productivity and morale. JAN, which like EARN is a service of the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Disability Employment Policy, has reported the Workplace Accommodations: Low Cost, High Impact study each year since 2004.

Dr. Lauren Lieberman and I from Department of Kinesiology, Sport Studies, and Physical Education (KSSPE) at the College at Brockport, SUNY are conducting a study to determine the accessibility of hotels and accommodation facilities with the life experiences of people with disabilities. We are ready to send the questionnaire out to people with disabilities and their families and traveling companions. Please find IRB approval document attached. We will be appreciated you to help us reach the participants. It should take about 10 minutes to complete the questionnaire. Results are expected to help improve the accessibility of accommodation facilities. We would be so thankful if you could please forward this to any list serves that you have and any friends you know that have disabilities or travel with people with disabilities.
