Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Hello I am a licensed attorney here to help you with your question, please review my response and do not hesitate to ask for clarification
It seems to me you may have a disability discrimination case,
If you have a disability and were able to perform your regular duties,
at worst they should have suggested to you, that you may need reasonable accomodations, as per the ADA
If you filed a previous EEOC complaint,
their action may be retaliation as well,
I would file another EEOC complaint, and at this point consider speaking to an employment attorney about possible litigation
Is the new EEOC complaint about retaliation or something else?
It is about disability discrimination, and retaliation
they forced me to sign a fit for duty statement before I left...I don't know what I signed, but he made me sign it while I kept asking why I had to leave
I was very uset as you can imagine
I also was scheduled for a very important trip for work that they said I could not go to for next week
You should argue that you were coerced to sign the document, and that you were fit to work,
I said I would go to the social worker but I wanted to go on my business trip
but they denied me
I would send a letter to HR, stating that their actions is a clear violation of the American Disabilities Act,
and that you will be filing a retaliation and discrimination claim against them
Thank you for your time, if you have another question do not hesitate to ask. If satisfied please press the green accept button, thank you again.
