Doug is my new best friend!

So This guy Doug commented on my blog (Comments)

He mentioned that it was illegal for the company to not give me the job because of my injury. So thanks to his link I did a little research on the site and contacted a few people.
Turns out it is in fact illegal for them to deny me the job because of my injury.

So I call the Fair Employment Housing Administration and advised them of my case.
They too say the company can not do what they are doing, they advised me to send the information that HR requested along with a letter.

Here it is.

Attention: Sabrina *********************************

As per our phone conversation on Tuesday March 7, 2006.

Please find attached a copy of the final medical evaluation and an explanation of my disabilities.
Per our conversations you also requested a doctor’s letter stating what my level of disability is, as well as why I am being prescribe pain medication, I have spoken to both doctors involved and neither was able to prepare (in the 2 day time frame I was given to hold the position) neither could prepare a report on time.

I have done some research into the issue of my disability and have spoken to the Fair Employment and Housing Association I feel I have been unfairly declined the position that I have been offered and am fully qualified to do.

A qualified individual with a disability is a person who meets legitimate skill, experience, education, or other requirements of an employment position that s/he holds or seeks, and who can perform the "essential functions" of the position with or without reasonable accommodation. Requiring the ability to perform "essential" functions assures that an individual with a disability will not be considered unqualified simply because of inability to perform marginal or incidental job functions. If the individual is qualified to perform essential job functions except for limitations caused by a disability, the employer must consider whether the individual could perform these functions with a reasonable accommodation. If a written job description has been prepared in advance of advertising or interviewing applicants for a job, this will be considered as evidence, although not conclusive evidence, of the essential functions of the job.

I ask that you kindly review my situation and advise me if the job offer to work at the RANDOM COMPANY still stands.

I look forward to hearing from you.

So thanks so much Doug for the information. I tried to find the link to your blog however it seems it has not been activated.

So I will keep you all posted if I am able to MAKE these people give me a job.

Oh and I got the job I interviewed for today too, however its 46 miles away and anyone who has ever driven in LA knows it will take me 2 hours to work and 2 hours home. Not to mention that I would also have to pay $8 day in tolls! Serious. They would have to pay me $20 hour to make it worth my while and some how I doubt that will ever happen.

UGG I wish I did not want this job so bad! I mean its 2 miles from home, and they are paying me more than I asked for plus bonuses!!!

Ha ha Now we wait to see what there response will be.

***** Revised******* Ack I was too clouded in my head and fume coming from my ears that incorrectly read the name or the guy who commented, that or I just did not read it and "Poof" Doug came to my head, which is weird because I do not even know any Dougs? Weird? Anyways it was BRUNO who gave me the link THANKS BRUNO!! *** hugs****
