Court Holds Nurse Not Qualified Because She Applied For Disability
An RN suffering from fibromyalgia who was fired for poor performance failed to show she was a “qualified individual” under the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act because she sought disability benefits and applied for only one job following her termination according to the court which so ruled on Jan. 28, 2013. (Bell v. Methodist Healthcare Memphis Hosps., W.D. Tenn., No. 2:11-cv-02756, 1/28/13).
