I have an employee at my small business (only 14 employees) who is constantly taking time off and asking for special treatment because of her arthritis. I like her and I feel bad about her condition, but her constant absences from work is killing us, in terms of both efficiency of our operation and our costs. Can I fire her because of all the absences or will that violate the Massachusetts laws about employment discrimination against handicapped people?
