William Woods' doctor recommended that Woods leave central Texas to alleviate his severe allergies. Woods said his employer refused a transfer but suggested he resign and then reapply at its location in Ohio. After Woods moved his family, the company told him it didn't rehire former employees. A lower court said Woods lost his protection under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) when he resigned. But an appeals court reinstated the case, saying the company had a duty to consider his transfer request. (Equal Employment Opportunity Commission v. United Parcel Service Inc., No. 99-4367, 6th Cir., 2001)
