I was told I should be medicated by my boss multiple times

Customer Question

I was told I should be medicated by my boss multiple times and he said it to me in front of another coworker before, is that even legal? He said it in a way to criticize my work.

This could be considered harassment if he is making these comments towards you due to an actual disability. Under the ADA, it is against the law to discriminate and harass an employee for a disability, and you can file an EEOC civil rights complaint against your employer, and explore a lawsuit.

I don't have any form of disability or have any clinical need to be on medication. Does that take away from the comments value in court?
Expert:  wallstreetfighter replied 2 years ago.
Yes, as the law only protects employees in protected classes, if you can argue he is doing this due to your age, gender, race etc., a lawsuit and civil rights complaint can be brought, the law in NC, allows for any other type of bullying if not made towards an employees civil rights.
