Has the asked for his FMLA time yet?
The only other thing you can do if the FMLA is exhausted is to get with a local employment lawyer and let them try and help him ask for a "reasonable accommodation" under the ADA.
A reasonable accommodation can be almost anything so likely the lawyer can find a way to structure it so he can keep his job or, if they fire him, where he can sue them.
You can find a lawyer near you by going to www.lawyers.com and entering Employment Law in the section for Area of Practice.
This is his only option right now.
