Employee misconduct and ADA protections

Will the law protect your right not to be fired if you shout profanities at your supervisor and throw things? Press coverage of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) may ebb and flow, but the law’s protection of mental, emotional and behavioral disabilities continues to generate extreme results in workplace cases, as attorney James J. McDonald, Jr. has documented in a series of articles. I discuss at Cato at Liberty.

    That wouldn’t include the Casey Martin decision where the Supreme Court rewrote the golf rules for the PGA.
