Not everyone can meet the qualifications for every job, so if you have the skills, education and experience to do the work, you should feel proud. Often these qualities come through hard work, dedication and paying your dues. This is why it can be frustrating when your disability prevents you from meeting your employment goals.
Fortunately, the Americans with Disabilities Act forbids employers from discriminating against qualified applicants or employees simply because of a disability. If you would be able to complete the essential elements of a position with some reasonable modifications, the law requires your employer to make those modifications. However, it is not always easy to achieve the accommodations you need.
