Ask the Lawyer received the following question (paraphrased for easier reading and clarity) from a reader on a legal matter that might be of interest to the entire audience.
I was recently terminated because I was unable to complete the training program for the position I was hired for under the Federal Career Intern Program. I had requested a reasonable accommodation after being diagnosed with a disease. What are my options?
Each case is different. Whether you are entitled to a reasonable accommodation or subjected to discrimination because of your disability can be ascertained eventually by use of the EEO process. You must start this process within 45 days of your termination or by contacting an EEO counselor.
