I highly recommend you consult with an employment attorney near you. There may be violations of law if they are taking actions against you because of a disability. Discuss the details of your condition with an attorney, and the accommodations you may need, so that the attorney can fully analyze whether your facts are an issue. Best of luck.
If I answered your question, or "agreed" with another attorney, it is only to give you some direction on your research. It does not create an attorney-client relationship between us. There is no agreement between us whatsoever. If you receive or use any information from me, it is purely for your help in research, and does not create a legal relationship between us. I am only licensed in the state of Florida, so anything I answer can be completely different if you are in another state. I do not practice law in any state but Florida. If you need legal advice, formally meet with and discuss your issues with an attorney in your area. Thank you and best wishes!
I'm sorry you're facing this situation. You definitely need to speak with an attorney ASAP so that you can understand your rights, what laws may have been violated and determine what steps you want to take to address the situation. In general, both Florida and federal laws dictate that an employer must provide you with a reasonable accommodation for a disabling condition if it allows you to perform your job and is not an undue burden upon the employer. Moreover, such laws also preclude an employer from retaliating against you because you have sought such an accommodation. Be proactive and protect yourself now while you're still employed.
Best of luck to you.

I agree with the others but will say this the employer if they want you gone will get their way. You may have a lawsuit but do you wish to continue on there after that? I'd look for other work and learn to investigate the future employer before accepting a position. Good luck.
