American Disabilities Act or the
State Anti-Discrimination Case
In Carroll v.
Xerox Corp. (2002), a managerial salesman filed a
discrimination lawsuit against his employer based
on stress and anxiety disorder.
The plaintiff did not prove discriminationunder the American Disabilities Act or the State anti-discriminationlaw. The court found that Carroll’s claim of disability did not meet
the definition of the law.
The plaintiff had demonstrated that he could not
perform the required responsibilities for his specific job during
certain times. He did not however prove that he could not perform
other jobs, or that he was restricted from performing those other
jobs. Thus, the employer prevailed in the case.
