I was not told that a 'project engineer's would be doing extreme labor in extreme temperatures. I left a good job I had been at for 14 years to join this firm and now have no job.

Dear Mr. Ransom,

 

It is possible that your employer has discriminated against you in violation the Americans with Disabilities Act (“ADA”), and/or the ADA Amendments Act of 2008 (“ADAAA”).  In order to determine whether or not you may have a claim against your employer, I would need to get some additional information from you about your disability, the specific job requirements, and whether your employer engaged in a interactive dialogue with you to try to reach a reasonable accommodation for your disability.  You can contact me for a free consultation by calling (317) 843-2606.  

 

Best,

 

Chip Clark
