I am being told that I must follow certain rules that are not being forced on anyone else in the building. One rule in particular is leaving at the end of the night. I am the only one who must walk to my vehicle with another person. Which means that I must wait for someone to be available or is leaving also so I can go home.

If you have a disability and are qualified to do a job, the ADA protects you from job discrimination on the basis of your disability. Under the ADA, you have a disability if you have a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits a major life activity. The ADA also protects you if you have a history of such a disability, or if an employer believes that you have such a disability, even if you don't.
Reasonable accommodation is any change or adjustment to a job or work environment that permits a qualified applicant or employee with a disability to participate in the job application process, to perform the essential functions of a job, or to enjoy benefits and privileges of employment equal to those enjoyed by employees without disabilities.
An employer is required to provide a reasonable accommodation to a qualified applicant or employee with a disability unless the employer can show that the accommodation would be an undue hardship -- that is, that it would require significant difficulty or expense.
It is also unlawful for an employer to retaliate against you for asserting your rights under the ADA.
I could really use some advise from anyone who might know what to do about abuse at the work place.
