Have you ever been told you're a work hazard for having mental illness?
I informed my shift leader at a fast food business i take xanax for anxiety and that it makes me work slow sometimes. She informed the managers (which I didnt mind), however they are wanting paperwork from the prescribing doctors and such because I am now a "work hazard" and that I "create an unsafe working environment". That really offended me. I think I've had it with the job and am quitting in the next few days. Has something like this happened to you?
