Abstract:     
In challenging employment-based discrimination, people with intellectual disabilities face persistent challenges of being considered unqualified for the jobs they seek. This article criticizes the case law for unjustifiably characterizing jobs as requiring independent performance. Individuals with intellectual disabilities who can perform jobs with coaching, task definition, or work team structures are thus unfairly disadvantaged by this portrait of work.
