Oklahoma City, OK asked in Employment Discrimination and Employment Law for Oklahoma

Q: Has my employer broken and ADA laws?

I have approved accommodations but since January my employer has kept adding so many tasks I am unable to follow my accommodations without being able to complete all my tasks and new tasks. This has led to me not getting my accommodated breaks and working over 40 hours (my accommodation limited me to 40 hours). My performance as a result has suffered and I did not end up renewing them as I did not want to waste money on a doctors visit only for them to be ignored. My performance is not awful it is just lagging behind my team a little bit and I know if I could have my accommodations and go back to just performing the base things I would be able to make the goal. My manager just put me on a performance plan anyways. I feel like something isn't right about all this and I have only not had my accommodations for a month which was partially because I was waiting on my insurance to go through to schedule my mri.

A: You should speak with your employer (if you haven't already) and let them know that you cannot complete your current workload while also honoring your approved accommodations that limit your hours. If the issue persists, you should contact an Oklahoma employment attorney to discuss your situation.
