Wow, what a bitch. Down grading disabled people and she was too stuck up to listen to your explanation. You deserve better.
Ask for that in writing you can take legal action its discrimination
Wow, I wasn't aware an allergy to pollen was now a disability, I'm sorry you had to deal with someone so rude and ridiculous, OP. Hope the hayfever gets better soon, I've been the same because of the heat :(
technically any condition that 'affects quality of life' be it allergies or being physically disabled, is considered a disability. pissed me off when I first learned about it. however professionally speaking, comments based on physical ability like what op experienced are very wrong. no one should discriminate against things like that within the work place. I say you got out lucky. best to know now than to get the job and be told a few months in.
That depends entirely on what sort of job it is, 42. You wouldn't want to hire someone with a broken arm for a job that involves lifting, would you? Sure it will heal eventually, as OP's condition will, but as an employer you want people who can start working sooner than later, and who you know aren't prone to getting sick or hurt.
