Customer Question

I was demoted because I suffer from cluster headaches which are seasonal and last about a month out of every year. I generally get one headache every 2 days and they last anywhere from 15 minutes to 45 minutes. If I got one while working I would just take my lunchbreak right then and when it was gone I would end my lunch. It never effected my job but I was demoted for having them. My boss used the excuse that their insurance company would not insure me.But I was insured for 3 weeks when I was promoted to the maintenance position for the company. When they demoted me I lost my pay raise and they stuck me as a cashier at a gas station I did not want to work at after he promised me he would get me back to the station I was at before the promotion. And they cut my hours down from full time to less than 24 hrs a week.
