I work nights and am on medication. My boss wanted me to

I work nights and am on medication. My boss wanted me to work days. I said it would mess up my med schedule. He proceeded to ask me what medications I was taking and what I was taking them for. I told him and I said I thought I could work around it so I could work days if need be. My boss said now that he knows what I am taking them for he said he couldn't put me on days now. After I told him he used it against me after I said I could work around the time. Isn't it against the law for a boss to inquire about your medication. Isn't it a privacy issue between you and your doctor?JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: IowaJA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: Full time. He took me off the next time I worked because he said he couldn't use me and wouldn't put me on days.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I can't think of anything.

I have bipolar disorder and I am under the care of doctor. I

I have bipolar disorder and I am under the care of doctor. I also work full-time. I started a new job and a month into it, I had a relapse of my bipolar and panic disorder. My doctor has to try various medications and they make me very sedated and then there is the illness effects, hopelessness, suicidal thoughts, mania, depression. I am a therapist and can not work during these times, Still, I drove 45 minutes very impaired so I wouldn't lose my job. I missed 5 days over three months. I took it without pay because I wasn't eligible for three months. They gave me a "verbal warning" which was in writing. The warning was because I was out those days. My doctor wrote two notes. Would they have written me up if I had breast cancer? Is it legal to give a warning if the absence was because of a disability?

What can we do if a company do not respond to a claim that

What can we do if a company do not respond to a claim that we have been treated against the rules defined in the Code of business conduct and ethics. The claim has been formally declared after I was fired (and therefore no more an employee), but was delared out of this process earlier when I was still an employee. The declaration was probably the reason I was terminated. I worked for a subsidiary of this group outside of the US.
