#18. Heart/cardiovascular

- Cases with relief: 1,880 (21.9% of closed cases)

- Monetary benefits: 1,334 (15.5% of closed cases)

- Meritorious cases: 230 (2.7% of closed cases)

- Closed cases: 8,591 (87.2% of all cases)

Like many disabilities on this list, heart/cardiovascular discrimination in the workplace is illegal. While heart conditions can prevent a worker from completing certain physical tasks, employers may not discriminate so long as that employee is still able to do the basic requirements of their job.
