My employer forces all work computers to use the same desktop wallpaper. Currently it is very high contrast and the colors are over saturated. It causes eye fatigue and makes text on the desktop hard to read.

Are they liable for discrimination by not allowing me to have desktop wallpaper that works better with my vision needs?

    You need to provide a bit more explanation regarding your disability. Disliking a wallpaper because it's too green or too busy isn't a cause for a discrimination suit, but if you have an actual mental illness that causes you a manic reaction when exposed to green could be, if you have brought your medical condition to the bosses attention. Jurisdiction matters very much. – user6726 Oct 9 '19 at 20:40

    I recommend that you open and maximize a visually appealing program that you are not actually planning on using. Then you won't have to look at the wallpaper. – James Oct 11 '19 at 11:26
