Yuck. I've seen that sort of thing in my workplace, too. Are you in a union?I've done that and that helped a little but when special Ops opportunities open up other unqualified individuals are selected over me. When I ask why that is when all the stories begin to flow
Yup. I'd start by assuming lack of knowledge. After all, dealing with disability -- perceived or actual -- is not part of normal operations for most employers.wether its out right discrimination or just lack of knowing, the preception of our employers can greatly effect how we move up through the work place.
even if we had a doc's note that said we could do any job, if the employer has a concern they might choose another person. even if they are less qualified.
