An employer may not discriminate against an employee because of a disability if that employee can do the essential functions of his or her job with or without reasonable accommodation.
If you can do your job but your employer perceives you as a disabled employee and terminates or discriminates against you, you may have a claim. Also if you can do your job but you need a reasonable accommodation and your employer refuses your request for an accommodation you may have a claim. Many workers who are injured on the job can do the job with a reasonable accommodation of light duty. If your employer refuses your light duty restrictions you may have a claim of Disability Discrimination.
