ADA

In a recent appellate decision, a court ruled that a hospital violated the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) when it terminated an employee who was on leave to receive treatment for alcohol abuse. The court found that hospital management referred to the employee as an alcoholic in company memos. Because the company considered the employee an alcoholic, he was protected under the ADA. (Moorer v. Baptist Memorial Health Care Center, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit, No. 03-5855, 2005)
