United States Court of Appeals For the Seventh Circuit

Civil

Employment – ADA — accommodation

The ADA does not require employers to reassign employees, who will lose their current positions due to disability, to a vacant position for which they are qualified.

“This court has previously determined that Barnett does not conflict with Humiston-Keeling. Courts within this circuit have continued to cite Humiston-Keeling favorably. As Humiston-Keeling is still good law and directly on point, the district court rightly concluded that the ADA does not require employers to reassign employees, who will lose their current positions due to disability, to a vacant position for which they are qualified.”

Affirmed.
