Go here for the story. I am asking the question because it is actually asked in poll form underneath the write up.

God bless you and the woman always!!!

P.S. If this whole matter has only made it harder for her to score another job, then in my opinion, that amount of money does not seem like much.

I’m not sure that is the whole story why she was released. It is an ADA case more than an issue with oxygen tanks.
We don’t really know how her disability affected her ability to do the job. An employer is expected to make a reasonable accommodation for a disability.
An oxygen tank may be reasonable, but I suspect there is more to the case.

$25,000 is just “shut up and leave us alone” money

Long as she could do her job and the oxygen tank didn't get in the way, I don't see a problem.

If the events went down as put forth in that short article, then yes I do think she does as they broke the law

I agree, but I expect there is more to the story

It depends on the job. Oxygen tanks present a risk of accidental explosion. She might do better with a concentrator.
