Fifty employed adults with multiple sclerosis (MS) completed a structured interview that enabled them to identify barriers to job retention in 4 areas: work site accessibility, performance of essential functions, job mastery, and job satisfaction. In addition to clarifying the specific types of work-related barriers that employees with MS encounter, results supported 4 hypothesized relationships among the variables of perceived barriers, job mastery, and job satisfaction. The findings of this study support such priorities as educating employees with disabilities regarding their rights to accommodation reviews under the Americans With Disabilities Act and encouraging early interventions at the work site that focus on barrier removal.
