I have worked in MP&L (stock department) for about 10 years. I am hard of hearing, with no need of any accommodation. It is required that all MP&L people have a hearing test, eye test, and they check your blood pressure, prior to signing off on your paperwork for being licensed to drive, forklifts, people carriers, tow motors, buggies, and production cars. I was sent to have my tests done so I could get my license renewed. When I came into MP&L, I wore 1 hearing aid in my right ear. I had no restrictions, whatsoever. Now, 10 years down the road, superintendent, and plant dr. are concerned for my safety
, and in order to get my license renewed, they are telling me to bring in a letter from my family Dr. or my audiologist, stating that I have to wear my hearing aids at work. If they don't renew my license, then I'll be disqualified from my job as a Team Leader in stock. I think this is against ADA
law. Can they after 10 years, demand that letter, so I can keep my job?
