So I haven’t worked in long while, 2 1/2 years, as I was my mother’s caregiver until she unfortunately passed away in March. Since then I have been searching for an office job in my field unsuccessfully. Due to going crazy being home all the time I decided to take a seasonal job at the Mall to get out of the house and meet other people. So I was hired on the spot with the possibility of a management position due to my experience. Even though this is a seasonal position, being management would help in the “real job” search. The store does not to open until November 1st so we have been getting all the merchandise stocked and ready to sell. Being that I have not had to put out this much energy in a long while my sugars were all over the place. I didn’t help myself that day because in trying to not be late I forgot all my diabetes supplies including my insulin. By late afternoon I was nauseated, dizzy, blurred vision, and had a huge headache. The woman who hired me asked if I was okay and told her I need something to eat as I was a diabetic.
Sooooo… yesterday she finally decided who would hold what position and told me that due to my being diabetic she didn’t feel comfortable hiring me for management, so I would only be a sales clerk! I was floored and didn’t know what to say. In all my years of being diabetic this has never happened to me, it always happened to someone else. Unfortunately I didn’t say anything back to the woman, I was too stunned. When I got home I told my sister what happened, and we all know how siblings can be. She wanted me to quit and call an attorney. Being that this is only a seasonal position I don’t want to say anything. I just want to sweep this under the rug and go on, and keep working, but it’s just nagging at me that I can’t just say nothing. No one witnessed her saying this to me and I don’t have the money for an attorney.
I don’t know what to do if I really should do anything at all. I really do know that I should, I just don’t know how without losing my job or creating undue drama. Can someone give me some advice please!
