I was recently fired but work in Oregon state that is at will employment. Upon my termination, which was done electronically through texts, the employer states that they have my hours from the current pay period already processed and the final paycheck is ready. He then states that on May 3 2024, my remaining sick pay (like PTO, but not exactly) and an additional 2 weeks severance will be sent to me. I provided my current mailing address and commented on the frugality of this situation and my termination in general. The employer then responded saying I was ungrateful and that he wasn't going to pay me. Being that the text messages have him agreeing payment on a given date because he didn't like my response isn't he still obligated for the payment because it's a contract? There's definitely more to this and could easily contain multiple questions needing answered...for example, discrimination harassment abuse and toxic work environment. #termination #discrimination #protectedclass #advice

Here are the Top 5 Areas of Discrimination against People with Disabilities. A horrible list and a Stark reminder of how much more work lies ahead for our Community and why Abled Workers Unite is an important group.

Employment discrimination: People with disabilities often face discrimination in the workplace, including difficulty finding employment, lower pay, and fewer opportunities for advancement.

Housing discrimination: People with disabilities may face barriers when trying to find accessible and affordable housing, including discrimination from landlords and real estate agents.

Healthcare discrimination: People with disabilities may face discrimination when trying to access healthcare, including difficulty finding doctors who are knowledgeable about their condition and lack of access to appropriate medical equipment.

Education discrimination: People with disabilities may face discrimination in the education system, including lack of access to appropriate accommodations and support services.

Transportation discrimination: People with disabilities may face barriers when trying to access transportation, including lack of accessible public transportation and discrimination from transportation providers.

It’s important to note that these are just some of the issues that people with disabilities face, and there are many other factors that can contribute to discrimination. If you or someone you know is experiencing discrimination, there are resources available to help. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) prohibits discrimination against people with disabilities in many areas of life, including employment, housing, and public accommodations.

You can learn more about your rights under the ADA by visiting the ADA National Network website.

I hope this information is helpful. Let me know if you have any other questions. #AWU #disability #discrimination

Steps To Take When Reporting Discrimination

Once you've documented the discrimination, it's time to report it.

You should first report the incident to your human resources department or employer. Provide all the evidence you've gathered and explain how the discrimination affected you.

If your employer fails to address the issue, you can then file a complaint with a government agency. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) will investigate your claim. They may even take legal action against your employer.

Yet, remember you don't need a mountain of evidence to speak up.

Reporting discrimination isn't only about seeking justice for yourself. It creates an inclusive environment for everybody. Come and join Abled Workers Unite at jobcase.com/groups #AWU #disability #discrimination

Documenting Disability Discrimination in the Workplace

If you suspect you're facing discrimination, it's vital to document the incidents.

This means keeping a track record. Conversations, actions, and decisions that impact you should all be evidenced. Include the date, time, location, and people involved.

The more detailed your documentation, the easier it is for you to protect your disability rights.

You should also keep other relevant files that support your claim. These could be memos, emails, and performance reviews. Ask any witnesses to provide statements or testify on your behalf.

This evidence is crucial for reporting. It will be vital when you file a complaint - or if you decide to file a lawsuit. Come and join Abled Workers Unite at jobcase.com/groups #AWU #disability #discrimination
