Recruitment/talent Acquisition, Career Counselling
While empathizing with your friend's condition, there can be very few options left for him vis-a-vis further employment.
One clear option would be to choose any job that allows to working from home. He can ask his HR to allow working from home for the 2 months HR says they wish to wait for. That way he can take the chance to show that he can perform.
However, Work-from-Home can limit the type of jobs assigned--since confidential work is not usually assigned to such employees UNLESS the Company is sure it won't be misused. Also, jobs that need regular interaction with others or other employees may not be assigned.....though one-off meetings can be handled thru Skype.
Your friend may also need to take a cut in the salary--he may not be able to insist on the same salary as before.
But I guess that's the downside of such situations.

Also plead any breach on the part employer in respect employment terms and conditions. The burden is on you, to establish facts, whereby the Court/Tribunal could conclude that occupational stress caused the harm to your health, on the basis you are seeking compensation for.
Nevertheless ,one have to establish the facts, accordingly show the workplace stress as the root cause of injury. We can also plead work related stress combined with harassment, triggered the reoccurrence of a past or present disability. In turn, establish the facts within your grievance before the Tribunal/Court. This potentially makes the employer liable to pay you compensation for disability discrimination under the Indian Labour Law.
If you are capable to do the given work, the employer can/should not deny the employment on the basis of disability. Moreover, disability caused because of employment.
