what is the requested accomodation? how long has it been?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
The employer originally accommodated me for my disability but later decided they could not and verbally released me from work. The plan was to find another department because manager refuse to accommodate me after medical documentation was provided. It has been about 7 months now with no accommodation.

The eeoc is a federal agency charged with reviewing discrimination complaints. www.eeoc.gov is its site and you can pursue a complaint using it.You want to prepare your case by creating a time line starting from the earliest event. For each event, write down key details and witnesses and if there is a document that relates to it, save it and refer to it. This timeline can be very valuable in narrating your case and presenting it later in a concrete and specific way.If I can clarify or explain anything further, just ask me. kindly rate me 5 stars.
