Daniels v. DCA, Inc.

An employer, which was motivated by a perception that smokers were at risk of becoming disabled and, thus, did not want to hire them, ran an ad stating: “To be considered for employment you must be a non-smoker.”  The smoking job applicant who was denied employment obtained relief under Minnesota’s handicap law.
