In times where the fourth industrial revolution is looming on the near horizon, technological advances and new employment configurations invite us to question access to quality jobs for vulnerable groups such as people with disabilities.

It is observed that barriers persist in the accessibility and use of services, products and transportation and an ineffective professional training that supports the old paradigm of considering this group as a handicap in the processes of growth and industrial development. This requires investigating the management of resources, physical, technical and procedural factors involved in the design of jobs and reviewing some alternatives such as the Supported Employment methodology.

Keywords: Disability, Employment, Handicap, Industry 4.0, Individualized, Jobs, Opportunities, Skills, Supported, Work, Workplace.
