Decided
Thu, 06/12/2014

Wetherbee v. Southern Nuclear Operating Co.: Wetherbee was offered a position with Southern Nuclear contingent on a medical evaluation. The medical team determined that he could only be hired if he complied with his regimen for bipolar disorder. He also needed to be restricted from working with certain equipment for one year while the company verified his compliance. The use of this equipment was part of the requirements for the position offered to him, and Southern Nuclear rescinded the offer. The District Court ruled in favor of Southern Nuclear.

Decision

The Eleventh Circuit Court affirmed the decision.
