Medical Disability

Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about medical disability:

I have a medical disability with my back and would like to know what my rights are when I apply for a job and may have to do some heavy lifting.

Signed, Back Down

Dear Back Down:

Why have you sent us three question–one about applying for employment with a back problem, another about general disability discrimination, and the third about ms? Have you consulted the Internet regarding discrimination and disabilities? Have you spoken with someone employed in Human Resources? Have you taken out any books from your library on these topics? Are you a student hoping for someone to do your homework for you? Are you really disabled and have ms and or a back problem? Please give us details and information that you have gathered so far and we will take the time to give our advice. However, we are not attorneys and legal rights are matters of law.
