Regarding legal questions, it's probably best to
consult with a lawyer, but I'm not sure the answer
is so clear.

I think it's with *potential* employers that
discrimination's a big issue: they're not supposed
to deny people jobs just because of any mental

But if it's actual employers, the people already
have jobs, so that's not an issue.

Not that discrimination against people should be
allowed once they have jobs...
