This just in from my local daily:
To recap: the individual in question has knee injuries. She has a cane and a motorized vehicle to aid her. She asked for handicapped accessible parking and she was denied.
Not long after that, she was terminated from her job. No explanation.
To turn down somebody who needs a more accessible parking spot, yes, that’s discrimination. Is it not the law that by hook or by crook, a parking space is to be provided for you?
Something like this is fairly easy to prove.
But for the rest of us, not being able to get the job is neithe here nor there. Literally anything could have happened; there are no more rules and there is no more sense or rhyme or reason behind the candidate search.
Another case: an applicant sued a company. She was interested in a job and since she was from Puerto Rico, she had citizen status. They insisted that she needed a green card (not true) and she wound up suing them. She won.
For us, neither here nor there.
