Fired for a Sleeping Disorder - North Carolina
I had started missing work due to a condition that is called Chronic Fatigue. My job was a temp job and my bosses and managers at the temp job knew about my condition and did their best to help me. The HR lady at my temp job started to get a little frustrated, understandably, and called the temp agency and they spoke with me about it and had asked me to contact them each time after that I was late because of this condition. With Chronic Fatigue, there is no cure, no diagnosis and no way to really prove you have it. The doctor simply assumes you have the illness. The day I was fired, I was scheduled to be at work at 7:30 and when I didn't show up, the temp agency wrote me an email asking not to come back. When I woke up after my alarm going off for nearly 5 hours, I called her right away and she told me not to return. We then discussed the matter and both felt that a first shift job was not suitable for me given I have a problem getting out of bed each morning. I was always a hard worker, showed great enthusiasm in my job and did my very best to make it their on time. I am not sure how to appeal this or if I even can, but I have not found another job and I am now starting miss payments and not be able to buy proper groceries. Any suggestions?
Were you denied unemployment benefits?
If so, what did the determination say?
Has the temp agency been able to provide you with suitable work per your conversation about a different shift?
And if you were denied, when is the appeal due to be timely?
And Brett, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome can be diagnosed because there are people with this condition, who receive SSDI. http://www.disabilitydoc.com/chronic-fatigue-syndrome-and-d/
If you would please answer the questions above, I might be able to point you in a viable direction.
