That is awful, I’m so sorry! You must be really angry with her, I know I would be!

I don’t know what to say other than I am so so sorry.  But honestly the way they treated you doesn’t sound legal!

Yeah, isn’t this like ADA non-compliant?  They can’t hire you and not make accomodations.

I’m so sorry. They needed to be upfront about that with you about the requirements!! I hope you figure out another job, what a horrible position to be in.

I think you may have grounds for a lawsuit.

umm what she did was illegal.

You should have gotten the requirements in writing

You could still have a lawsuit if any coworkers could back you up that this was what was required of you….

This really sucks, I would file a complaint with the organization, and also what she did was illegal….but I don’t know if you even want to persue that route.

Wow, sorry, that really stinks! Unfortunately, I have discovered that people will sometimes just blantantly LIE during interviews. A few years ago I took a job that was quite a commute from home. I live in the boondocks and the winter commute would have been treacherous at best. When I explained my misgivings about commuting so far (an hour in good weather, traffic, etc) during the winter months, they told me that they had snow days. (I am an educator.) It turned out that this was a blatant LIE.  Don’t get me wrong, it’s something that all the other people where I live have to deal with, but I totally did not appreciate being lied to. I totally know where you are coming from.

This might be to late but you should reach out to MCAD (Mass. Commission Against Discrimination). If its to late now at least for future reference it would be helpful. What she did was definitely wrong especially where you have a medical condition. I hope you found something! She sounds like she would have been crappy to work for anyway.
