My doctor signed a paper for my work for a medical accommodation stating that I was not able to work after 6pm due to my chronic fatigue and that people with MS do not do as well at night as they do in the day. 2 weeks later I got an answer that corporate people from my store denied my accommodation but now I am not getting any hours.
In fact, in 2 weeks I will have no hours since they, as they put it, are nice and going to give me what my doctor asked for out of the kindness of their hearts and not work me after 6 pm. They said they cannot guarantee me hours so I feel I have been discriminated (against) over this.
They are mad because I did not disclose my handicap, but from what I understand, I do not have to disclose my illness. Am I wrong for being upset over this and wanting to seek out legal help??
