Dickerson v. Bd. Of Trustees of Comm. College District 522, 7th Cir., No. 10-3381, September 16, 2011

Articles Discussing Case:

Employee must meet legitimate job expectations in order to support a claim under the ADA.

Ogletree Deakins • September 19, 2011
The Americans with Disabilities Act prohibits employers from discriminating against individuals because of disability or perceived disability. However, in order to sufficiently support an ADA claim, an individual employee must be able to prove that he was qualified to perform his job in a satisfactory manner, with or without accommodation. Recently, the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld summary judgment in favor of an employer, based upon the fact tat the plaintiff/employee, although disabled, was unable to show that he was meeting the legitimate job expectations of his employer and therefore was not a “qualified individual with a disability” under the ADA.
