Let’s protect you from doing a desk job for several years and if you are really good at your job, you get positive reviews. Unfortunately, you are suddenly diagnosed with kidney disease and you have to have dialysis twice a week. Your request is to arrive at your work 10 minutes later than usual on your treatment day. So you can finish your full treatment.
Now your boss is a jerk, he is an immature person even the HR tells him to accomody you, he does not accept special accommodation and he personally meets you and talks to you about how unhealthy people are harmful to his company. Try your best but suddenly get fired 3 weeks later for poor job performance. In this situation, you clearly have physical disability discrimination. And if your lawyer can convince 12 people in the jury box then the reason for your termination is your disability you might prevail your ease.
