Hello and welcome.
My name is XXXXX XXXXX my goal is to provide you with excellent service today. I am sorry to hear of your difficult situation. Before I can give you an accurate answer to your question, please provide the following additional information:
Is there an accommodation the employer can provide you which would permit you to perform the new job while maintain control over your condition? Do you have any reason to believe the employer is discriminating against you because of your disability?
I look forward to assisting you as soon as I have received this information. Thank you.
I believe the reassignment to my old position is the best accommodation. I have tried seeing a specialist and she even suggested returning to my old job. the new job is too unpredictable in terms of work load so it make it very hard to control my diabetes, I did ask my employer if they has suggestion on accommodation and they have not made any. I do believe the employer is discriminating against me , at this point what else could I think??
I hope this helps clarify the situation for you. Please remember to rate my service once you have all the information you need so I will be compensated for my time from the deposit you posted with this website. If you have any other questions, please ask me – I’ll be happy to respond. Thank you!
from what I have read type 1 diabetes is a disability and reassignment to a vacant job is a reasonable accommodation. my old job is currently a vacant position so why would they be unwilling to reassign me to the open position
I was also wondering if I return to work and the effects of the new job make my diabetes uncontrolled again and my diabetic retinopathy starts to progress would they be held accountable for forcing me into a position that could harm me
what other step can I take to make sure my right are not violated
