Royal Palm Beach International Airport Informative - Fired Air Traffic Controller for having A-D-D
LAKE PARK -- Thanks to the equal employment opportunity commission, I was hired as an air traffic controller last Friday. My boss was aware of my disability (A-D-D, or attention deficit disorder) but hired me anyway.
On the first day, I was watching t-v and not paying attention to the incoming flights. My boss started telling me to pay attention, but I was thinking about what I'm going to do this weekend and didn't hear him while I was eating a bag of potato chips and talking on my cell phone. To make a short story longer, I was fired. This isn't right and now I can't get an attorney to take my case. Any suggestions?
