    It’s about time that employees start standing up for their rights and not let these companies get away with things! Way to go Adam! There are too many employers that need to reconginze and support employees with disabilities! Just because you physically can’t see a disability on a person DOES NOT mean they don’t have a disability. There are many rights that disabled people have and there are many things that people are not required to disclose. Before an employer decides to fire someone because of work performace, etc, they should really be asking themselves, “does this person have a disablility?” or “maybe this person is having a hard time concentrating or staying on task and we need to look at some other options, etc”. I have a family member with a disability that you can’t physically see and employers have been down right nasty! To top it off, that person was getting fired from a place of employment, they appealed it with unemployment and won! The unemployment Judge was not very kind to the company that pulled their “firing stunt” especially after this person did disclose their disability (and wasn’t required too) with a shop manager after struggling at their job. Think about it twice employers. It’s your obligation to make sure you don’t violate the ADA.
