Venting … So, this is apropos timing. I was hired by a firm (not the one listed on my prof) two months ago and on at least three occasions notified them about my adhd and the anticipated need for an accommodation based on historical experience and my documented diagnosis. Three weeks ago they fired me for not meeting expectations. I only put in four weeks of actual project work, in the last month of a 9 month long engagement. UGH! I just want to work..

Yikes, sorry. Did they say what expectations weren’t met? Do you think they’re right but that you would’ve been able to meet expectations if you had accommodations?

Also, just out of curiosity, what accommodations do you usually ask for?

The biggest thing is an established peer review process to make sure I haven’t missed any details etc so there is always a second set of eyes on my work. Beyond that i ask for call recordings / transcripts when the participants / topics of discussion allow for it, notes by analysts when they are present and esp when I am leading calls, extended deadlines whenever possible (practically never).

Did you document your communications with them, specifically your request for reasonable accommodations? If so, and you think you can prove that you would have been able to meet their expectations had your request been granted, then you may have a solid discrimination case on your hands.

I agree with SC. OP, suggest you speak with a lawyer or look into whether there’s a regulatory body or a relevant disability rights group where you can get support on next steps where you live. Just be careful about filing any type of regulatory complaint until you understand all options available.

Ugh I am so sorry tohere that. Did they actually give you the accomodations. I think I might talk to an attorney if I were you.

Is it even valid to fire someone just because they did not meet the company's expectations after working for only 3 weeks? You are supposed to be in a probationary period. Why don't you check your contract.

It depends on local laws, but you can often be fired without any reason during a probation period.

The one observation that I’ve yet to see any of the talking heads make (yet our military leaders are no doubt noting) is how incredibly unimpressive the Russian military is. From tactics and logistics, to air and ground operations, their failure to dominate is telling. The Ukrainians will sadly most likely lose the war, but the fact that they’ve inflicted so much damage on the Russians is no doubt something Putin clearly didn’t account for. And may the Ukrainians continue doing so.
