Employment protection for people with Disabilities in America
One of our members is in a situation where they will need to advocate for themselves due to a change of ownership/employer and a resulting missing evidence of the pre existing accomodations agreement.
As far as I understand the Americans with Disabilities Act (1990) should be providing protection for them.
SlyFox said:I had accommodations for hours and not pushing store credit card. I had panic attack at work yesterday after they pulled me in to tell me corp said no to accommodation . i had one for last 5 years or so but company was sold to current one and they say they have no records of it.
they say since its essential task i can't, but it was essential task before new company bought us and i had existing accommodation, i think they "lost" it on purpose. now people at work probably know i'm defective autistic which i worked really hard to hide. being most of them are conservatives who think people who aren’t able to survive on their own should die as survival of fittest is natures way. they hate government steals their money to provide welfare to parasites.
i was still sharking and tense hours after I left work early. was only clocked on for 20 mins.
This is a tough one, but worth fighting for @SlyFox, we are here you arent alone.
Ok, whatever you do, dont miss any more work, or give them an actual valid reason to let you go.
This to me, is a technique to push you out the door, all they need is for you to provide evidence that they are within their rights to let you go.
Hold firm and do your job within your abilities as agreed with the previous company.
Do you have a copy of the original accomodation agrement? Any documentation about it?
The panic you feel is normal, but not helpful at the moment, have you a way to exercise inside, a way to burn off this energy physically, to help you think clearer?
