In brief: If symptoms are mild

Lupus patients with their disease in remission or well controlled can work, but lupus patients with active disease will be having many symptoms that make it too difficult to work.
Lupus patients with raynaud's phenomenon would not be able to work in jobs with cold temperatures (such as ice cream sales) or vibrations (such as hammer-drilling) if those activities trigger vasospasm.
