The problem I'm seeing is, if there is precedent for the government to enact laws to prevent discrimination against people afflicted with say HIV (i.e. not hiring them on those grounds or requiring them to make special provisions for their illness), then what leg do companies have to stand on to discriminate against those not vaccinated for COVID?

I agree, and am completely against a mandate. The question is if it's legal for an employer to demand it, I'd say it is.

A federal appeals court reaffirmed its decision Friday to enact a stay on President Biden’s workplace vaccination mandate following a legal challenge from Texas and several other states.
The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals ordered the U.S. Labor Department’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration to "take no steps to implement or enforce the Mandate until further court order." The decision was the latest development in what is expected to be a lengthy legal battle over the mandate’s legality.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, a vocal critic of the workplace vaccine mandate, lauded the court’s decision on Twitter.

Maybe there is some light at the end of the tunnel.
As someone who will not get this Vaccine regardless of the bribes, threats or "mandates", this is really good news.
I am hoping this Stay won't be struck down or overruled but, as a Christian, I know what must come.
A federal appeals court has temporarily halted the Biden administration’s vaccine requirement for businesses with 100 or more workers....
The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals granted an emergency stay of the requirement by the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration that those workers be vaccinated by Jan. 4 or face mask requirements and weekly tests.
Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry said the action stops Democratic President Joe Biden "from moving forward with his unlawful overreach.”
"Even so Lord, come."

After the Friday, Nov. 12th additional ruling:
It's a setup by the 5th containing carefully chosen wording that the most certain appeal to a highest court (SCOTUS) will NOT be taken up by SCOTUS and remanded as the ruling by the 5th circuit as being proper and needs no further court action. That is the equivalent of SCOTUS hearing the case and their ruling outcome would be the same as the 5th, so don't waste SCOTUS time.
