Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Thank you for the information and your question and I am sorry to read about your situation. Unfortunately though, an employer cannot be held responsible under the ADA for discrimination, or lack of reasonable accommodation, unless they actually know of the disability at the time of employment and, in the case of a reasonable accommodation, it is requested. So, an after the fact raising of the issue would not give you any legal right to reinstatement. However, if you write a letter to the Corporate HR and perhaps copy to their General Counsel and explain to them why you hadn't asked for the reasonable accommodation up front and their failure to be clear about their training program, they might reconsider and hire you back with the accommodations.
The fact that they didn't train you according to your expectation or even as they might have promised would not give rise to a legal claim either. Please feel free to ask for clarification if needed. If none is needed, then if you could take a moment to leave a positive rating in the ratings box above, I will receive credit for assisting you today. Thank you
I wanted to touch base with you and make sure that you did not have any follow up questions for me from the answer I provided to you on the 19th. For some reason, the Experts are not always getting replies or ratings (at the top of the question/answer page you are viewing or in the pop up box for this question), which is how we get credit(paid by the Site) for our work, that the customer thinks have gone through. In your case I received neither.
Please keep in mind that I cannot control the law or your circumstances, and am ethically bound to provide you with accurate information based on the facts you give me even if the news is not good. If you are having technical difficulties with reading, replying or rating,please let me know so that I can inform the Site administrator. Please note that Site use works best while using a computer and using either Google Chrome or Firefox.
In any event, it was a pleasure assisting you and I would be glad to attempt to assist you further on this issue, or a new legal issue,if needed. You can bookmark my page at: http://www.justanswer.com/law/expert-marsha411jd/
