I have been a telephone sales rep for a firearms distributor for 3.5 years. I do not travel. On rare occasions there is a special event they ask us to attend. (I am one of the top sales reps with this company.) On May 9th,2016 I told them I could travel on those limited occasions but I would need my husband to travel with me at my expense. I have Peripheral vascular disease, hypertension, anxiety, and take medication for all of them. It is very painful for me to walk any distance. I also take a medicine for the PVD, a blood thinner which causes me to be a "bleeder". My husband needs to travel with me because he knows my medical condition. I have had 2 mini strokes in the past several years.
Keeping in mind from 02/29/2013 the day of hire and 05/09/2016 I was a top sales rep, never written up for anything.
05/09/2016 sent my written notice of my medical condition, and offered them medical proof.
