The United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit has held that a job applicant not hired or an at-will employee discharged on the basis of handicap or disability does not have a non-statutory cause of action for wrongful discharge based on the public policy exception to the employment at will doctrine since adequate remedy is available under the Pennsylvania Human Relations Act.
