The case of Huber versus Wal-Mart was about a lady who before her disability worked in a position of order-filler. Considering her position, Huber opted to be reassigned to a different position that could make it easier for her to carry out the duties assigned to her. By the time she was applying for the position, it was vacant, and it was her wish that she takes the position. However, to her disappointment, the employer failed to grant her wishes and instead filled the position with an individual who was not disabled but qualified for the job.
