This manual presents a comprehensive evaluation tool that can be used by employees with disabilities, by rehabilitation practitioners, and by consultants to develop job accommodations in a variety of employment settings. The Job Accommodation System is designed to help in identifying, selecting, and implementing job accommodations and consists of six sections: (1) the coversheet, which includes employee's and employer's description of the barrier to job performance, job accommodation history, confidential medical history, and comments section; (2) a job analysis, which includes employer's, employee's, and/or rehabilitation practitioner's description of job duties, responsibilities, work environment, and task barriers; (3) the profiles, which are designed in an interview format, that assist in the development of a comprehensive picture of the employee in five functional skill areas; (4) the diagrams, which include graphic representations of typical office furniture and equipment; (5) a summary work sheet, which presents a summary and comparison of information collected in the profiles and job analysis sections, and initial ideas for job accommodation ideas; and (6) recommendations and alternatives, which present recommended accommodations, including equipment and service sources, cost and funding sources, and person responsible for implementing each accommodation. Examples of worksheets are provided and reproducible blank forms are included. (CR)
