"having an alcohol or drug addiction is considered a disability"

Keep that in mind the next time your ICU nurse walks into your room with a syringe in her hand. Make sure you have somebody with you to question every single treatment/drug/test you receive, the reason for it and who ordered it.

This stupid law was the reason I gave up on George Bush Sr (this law is not new) and why I quit working in HR. Actually quit working all together. That stupid law gave every slacker the right to demand to continue working whether or not they even show up or whether or not they are on drugs or alcohol or have some imagined illness. It's bad enough when your company is making widgets. Think about hospitals. Enough already.

There's no wonder companies start laying off hundreds of workers. They can't fire anybody without ending up in court (unless you're male, white and under the age of 40). Recessions are the necessary result of having to keep dead wood to stay out of court. Unfortunately, our government/schools have no such financial controls or incentives to not be bloated with slackers and never seem to have layoffs. They can keep dead wood forever...and we just pay more taxes to enable their behavior.
