Many people with disabilities want to work, but face barriers: discrimination, inaccessible work places, insufficient adaptive technologies, inflexible job duties, unavailable services to prepare for work, and, if hired, loss of essential benefits and medical insurance that can not be replaced by working incomes. Disability Rights Ohio offers information, publications, referrals, advocacy, legal counsel and representation to assist people with disabilities to prepare for, to enter, and to remain in the work place.
