Hello,

Thank you for the information, I apologize for the confusing nature of the Site's autofill Q&A. The Experts don't work directly for the Site, so we have no input on how they take in questions from customers. In any event, you have a live real person now and I will need a bit more information from you.

Can you tell me briefly what the employer did after accusing you of being impaired and what your legal question is? Thank you
