No law prohibits it. But an employer can have a non-dsicriminatory policy that prohibits it. In my mind a question about such a policy would arise if those with restrictions from a work injury were treated differently than those who did not suffer a work injury.

This answer to your legal inquiry is based upon the limited facts stated in your question. Accurate legal advice is based upon an exchange between a lawyer and a client. The lawyer can then ask about other facts that may change or confirm the answer. Without that exchange, this reply should be considered limited in value. You should rely on this answer only at your own risk. Direct consultation with a lawyer is always recommended. Answering your question does not create an attorney-client relationship.
