If you live with a chronic illness, disability or even a mental health condition, it can be much harder to find work opportunities, especially ones that fit your needs like a flexible schedule for doctor’s appointments. You may also have faced doubt about whether you’re able to work at all, including from job recruiters themselves. This simply isn’t true, especially when employers make simple accommodations.

Looking for a new job? Follow The Mighty’s #NowHiring page to find and post job opportunities.

Mighty contributor Meridith O’Connor aptly sums up the issue in her article, “Finding Accommodating Employment When Chronically Ill.” She wrote:

“People with disabilities cannot work” is a blanket statement and a scapegoat for discrimination and stereotyping. Many of us can work, and want to work. As a society, we must see beyond the limitations disabilities present, and cultivate spaces that allow us to embrace our skills and strengths, allowing us to be who we are, and not our disabilities.

If working from home is the very accommodation you need to succeed, you can try asking your current employer or the hiring manager of a job you’re interested in if they will allow you to work remotely. This right to request reasonable accommodations is protected under the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA). You can also, of course, look specifically for job openings and companies that hire remote workers.

To get you started, here are seven companies with work-from-home jobs with positions open now. Don’t forget to share with us how your search is going in the comments!

1. Xapo

Digital currency like Bitcoin is all the rage, and China-based Xapo aims to help clients keep their digital currency locked up safe.
