abilityJOBS is dedicated to people with disabilities. Under the ADAAA, "major life activities" is expanded to include "major bodily functions." The statute contains a nonexhaustive list of "major life activities" that adds additional activities to those currently listed in the ADA and Section 503 regulations, and a nonexhaustive list of "major bodily functions." If you're not familiar with the definition of "what is a disability" read more about the legislation Americans with Disabilities Amendments Act (ADAAA).
If you fit the definition then be sure to post your resume.
abilityJOBS has national and local companies posting jobs in most areas around the US and some around the world. Employers post new jobs every day. Many search for resumes to fill local positions. We recommend all Job Seekers upload resumes and sign up for email notifications for area jobs
If you need local assistance, we recommend visiting your local vocational rehabilitation office who can direct you to the best resources and assistance in your area
