Can I fire someone with a disability or are they “untouchable” once hired?

If you have a solid accommodation plan {insert hyperlink to FAQ accommodations process question}, have followed that plan and have documentation of accommodations, extra trainings etc, then you can definitely fire an employee who is not fulfilling the required job tasks. Make sure you have documentation so that if the employee decides to sue for discrimination you will have proof that you tried all you could to make the situation work.
