Hello and thank you for entrusting me to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do everything I can to answer your question.
It is not necessarily evidence of discrimination that you were required to complete paperwork. When an employee makes a formal request for accommodations under the ADA, the employer has a legal right to request documentation to corroborate the requesting employee's disability. Exercising this right, even when telecommuting requests from other employees are approved without hassle, is not against the law.
Your claim arises from the fact that your employer can reasonably accommodate your present telecommuting arrangement but is instead unreasonably and without justification insisting that you telecommute only one say a week. The fact other employees are able to telecommute more frequently is evidence in this specific context that your employer is violating your rights under the ADA. The paperwork issue not so much.
In any case, until you are fired or suffer some sort of quantifiable adverse employment action as a result of this accommodation dispute
, you have no recoverable damages. Litigating this sort of claim would cost thousands of dollars and is not cost-effective without the prospect of recovering substantial damages. So, mediating at this stage is still your best bet.
I hope that you find this information helpful. Please do not hesitate
to let me know if you have any questions or concerns regarding the above and I will be more than happy to assist you further.
If you do not require any further assistance, please be so kind as to provide a positive rating of my service so that I may receive credit for assisting you. Very best wishes moving forward.
