attendance and my defense is diabetes type 1 caused my attendance problems
I never informed my employer about my condition and the need to adjust my schedule or anything to help me with my problem. I recently had a denial hearing and my former employer brought their lawyer and a witness(hr rep)they grilled me and said they had no knowledge of my condition. They also said they asked everything in my final written warning to help prevent the termination. How can it be misconduct if my condition cause the tardiness which cause my termination?
Whose choice was it, not to use your diabetes as a good reason for being tardy to work?
Did you ever make the employer aware you had diabetes and that the work schedule you were on somehow prevented you from being to work on time?
