Know your rights
Know your rights. The Americans with Disabilities Act and the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 prevent employers from discriminating against qualified employees based on disability.
Talk to a lawyer. Find an attorney that specializes in employment and/or disability law.
Be forthright. In some cases, discrimination may be a case of an employer misunderstanding what diabetes is and how it’s treated. Tell your employer what accommodations you need to do your job well, and why you need them.
Leave a paper trail. Document instances of discrimination in the work place in writing, and ask that the information be put in your personnel file.
