Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Good evening and welcome. I think I am having trouble understanding what your question is about. You mention that you told your employer about ADHD, but then you also mention something about being instructed not to hire someone is gay. Are these things related? What is your specific legal question for me here?
Okay, sure. What is your question regarding the ADHD?
Your employer cannot discriminate against you because you have a disability, but there is nothing improper about either looking up information about the disability you have or asking you to talk to HR.
How can I assist you with regard to the other matter? Are you asking whether this is illegal?
Employers are supposed to only share medical information if reasonably necessary. HR likely will want to know whether there is anything they can do to accommodate your disability and understand more about what your limitations are. Typically these things are handled through HR so there is nothing unusual about what you describe.
Yes, that is definitely illegal. However, it would be the employee who was denied employment who would have a claim. There would not typically be any legal action that you could take directly on your own, aside from anonymously reporting this matter to the EEOC.
Please let me know if there is anything more I Can do to clarify things for you. If I have answered your questions, I would be very grateful for a positive rating of my service (using the stars at the top of the page) so that I may receive credit for assisting you.
