Narcolepsy and Discipline at Work for Sleeping
Posted 17 February 2008 - 12:38 AM
Reccently I have taken militant stance with Health Care Provider. I wasn't going to take, "we don't know", for an answer. I was finally diagnosed with Narcolepsy and put on Provigil, but not before my employer disciplined me for falling asleep at work.
Has anyone else had any issues with discipline in the work place concerning Narcolepsy? It seems wrong. But my employer is adamant that they want to make an example out of me.
Any help is appreciated.

I've also had some big problems at work but everything has gotten much better since I told my HR department that I have narcolepsy and esp. since my doctor gave them a letter saying I should be covered under ADA.
Good luck with everything! Everyone on the message board is cheering you on!
