BRUNNER v. AL ATTAR
786 S.W.2d 784 (1990)
Court of Appeals of Texas, Houston (1st Dist.).
February 15, 1990.
We overrule point of error one.
In her second point of error, Brunner asserts that the trial court erred in holding that her termination was not discrimination "because of handicap" in violation of the Tex.Rev.Civ.Stat.Ann. art. 5221k (Vernon 1987), the version of the statute applicable to this case.
Section 5.01(1) of article 5221k of the Texas Revised Civil Statutes1 provides that it is unlawful to discharge an individual because she is handicapped:
It is an unlawful employment practice for an employer:
(1) to fail or refuse to hire or to discharge an individual ... with respect to compensation or the terms, conditions, or privileges of employment because of ... handicap....
Tex.Rev.Civ.Stat.Ann. art. 5221k, sec. 5.01(1) (Vernon 1987). The statute also explains the meaning of the phrase "because of handicap":
In Article 5, "because of handicap" or "on the basis of handicap" refers to discrimination because of or on the basis of a physical or mental condition that does not impair an individual's ability to reasonably perform a job.
