  1. You'll want to talk to an employment lawyer - this could potentially be an Americans with Disabilities Act claim, although it might be a stretch and there are certain limitations on the size of business to which the Act is applicable (and obvious factual questions about whether this is a disability, whether your employer knew of it, whether reasonable accommodations were offered, etc.) Note that the co-worker issue is inconsiderate but irrelevant to any claim.
