The article describes an empirical investigation of the factors associated with job satisfaction among employed people with chronic illnesses (n = 41). Results indicated that job satisfaction is a function of the number of job mastery and accessibility/performance of essential function barriers occurring in the workplace. Hence, reduction of workplace barriers is an important post-employment service goal for employees with chronic illnesses. High priority post-employment services include (a) objective assessment of barriers to productivity in the workplace and (b) job accommodation and career counseling interventions to reduce or remove the barriers.
