I was open and honest from the start with my former boss about my disabilities. I asked for reasonable accomodations which were not provided. the state voc rehab who is working with me tried reaching out to my former boss on several occasions and the former boss did not bother trying to get into contact with them because they felt it was a waste of time. Please advise, and If I do have a case and move forward will it hurt my chances of getting hired anywhere in the future?
