The paper reviews service initiatives designed to facilitate job retention for employees with multiple sclerosis (MS). The thesis is that worksite barriers must be removed via reasonable accommodations for persons with MS to continue working as the illness progresses. Key elements of barrier removal include (a) needs assessments, (b) civil rights information concerning Title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act, (c) training on how to request reasonable accommodations from one's employer, and (d) consultation with employers.
