I see. Thank you for the additional information.
The law that could be used to compel the employer to accommodate your wife's request is usually the American's with Disabilities Act where the employer does not have a policy of providing for such accommodations. However, your wife could only invoke the ADA if she had a disability, such as a condition that affects a major life activity. This type of seasickness that you describe could very well be considered a disability under the ADA since one of the symptoms involves vomiting.
If her physician can indicate that he believes this involves a disability under the ADA, then that would typically invoke her rights under that statute and the employer would be required to provide the requested accommodation unless it is an undue hardship to them, which usually means it is too costly.
Here is a link that sets out what is a reasonable accommodation under the ADA:
If the company still refuses to accommodate her, then she should normally file a complaint with the HR department and a charge with the state Fair Employment and Housing Commission if the matter is not promptly resolved through the HR department.
If her condition does not fit the definition of a disability under the ADA and there is no employer policy to enforce, then the employer would not be required to provide the requested accommodation unfortunately.
