Yes, Aware of the limitations but chooses to down play them because I am and have always been someone who does not complain and pushes, I admiy, too hard.
Jeff,Thank you for your follow-up. If you do not complain or push, then the employer can legitimately assume that you are able to perform what is being requested. Consequently I strongly suggest that you learn to say 'no' and politely explain tot he employer what you can or cannot do. It is extremely hard to say 'no', but the only person who can stand up for yourself is you--and here the attorney would be less helpful if the employer can show that you performed those tasks in the past--you have to go on record and formally state that you CANNOT do it so that you can build a potential paper trail if needed so that if the employer continues to press the same issues, you obtain recourse. But you must go on record and state that the requests against you are somehow unreasonable and violate your impairment limitations.Good luck.
