   stylists beware! first choice haircutters fired me illegally on 1/18/2010. i was hired as a stylist but was having vision problems from an injury 2 yrs ago that makes me see double sometimes. i told the manager for several days. yesterday i refused a client and explained my sight was off,she told me "if you cant cut hair,pack your stuff!" i even offered to take time off,get to see an opthalomologist,get corrective lenses and then return to work. i feel i was denied the right of "reasonable accommodations for a physical disability." meaning being allowed to take the time off so i could get my eyesight addressed. i guess i should have taken the client and risk doing an inferior job on him due to my vision! manager had a few complaints,thats when i told her i need to see a dr before taking more haircuts. please think twice before working for first choice or any of the chains owned by regis corporation.

I am confused..

AUTHOR: Robert - (U.S.A.)

Are you saying that an injury that happened 2 years ago all of the sudden requires you to have your vision looked at?  I would think that having 2 years to have the problem looked at is enough "reasonable accommodations".

You also didn't say when you were hired.  That is have you worked there for this entire 2 years, or were you new.  In either case it seems like you could have taken care of this in that time.  Either on some of your "off" days, scheduling time off IN ADVANCE, or getting the problem fixed before you were hired.

Florida is an At-Will state so they can fire you for basically any reason except for things that would violate discrimination laws.  I am not sure, but I doubt that double-vision would be a "protected class" on any ADA violation claims.  Because as I read your report, you were working that day, refused a customer, and expected the employer on NO notice to give you time off to "fix" what appears to be an issue you have known about for a while.
