A Perfect ADA Test Question — What's A Reasonable Accommodation for a Beer Taster?

Lowering the Bar, a blog that deals with "Legal Humor. Seriously." heads both south of the border and into territory I usually cover here with this post: Professional Beer Taster Successfully Sues Employer After Becoming An Alcoholic.

You need to read the whole story, but here's Kevin Underhill's logical conclusion of the upshot of a South American court ruling:

Apparently, if you need a beer taster you should not hire anyone who is an alcoholic, or anyone who is not an alcoholic (because they might become one). Or, you can hire someone in either category to be a beer taster, as long as you don't let them drink beer on the job.

Sometimes when you hit a dry patch of posting as I have lately, all you need is a little inspiration.
