A few months ago, I was subjected to a situation where a manager was attempting to stop me from receiving medical attention due to my diabetes where I was having a hypoglycemic blood sugar attack and needed medical attention. After HR had been contacted and the issue being "resolved" on their end, due to the fact they let the manager go after a couple weeks of the incident is there anything the company should have done or addressed? or should I have been compensated in any way for having to go through this? as well as I was placed in a different location that is 15/20 min further than originally and at a lower volume location where now my paycheck is being affected. Please any advice would help. Thank you.
As a type 1 diabetic myself, this is a serious issue. A little more details are needed before any of us can give you an answer on the employment/potential discrimination issues. I suggest calling one of us for a free consultation and review. Of course, I'd recommend one of us that is actually diabetic and knows the issues... but that's just me being selfish - haha. Give one of us a call to review in detail with you and provide real legal advice based on the facts. Happy Holidays!
