My question involves labor and employment law for the state of: Ohio
Job Title: Painter
I applied for a job on an air force base and after my physical they resended the job offer. Here is what happened in chronological order:
Physical report states that I am in good health, passed all aspects of physical tests; however, patient is on such and such medication for PTSD that can cause dizziness as a side effect and as such is advised not to be able to operate a vehicle, climb ladders, be around moving objects, or walk on uneven surfaces. Patient sent to primary doctor at Dayton VA Medical Center.
I returned with letter from doctor stating I am 100% good to work.
One week later I get a letter stating: Due to physical limitations put on you the job offer of painter has been resended and we encourage you to apply for other job openings through www.usajobs.gov
Had mediation which went good. I presented all my information, medical reports, ADA law, pass EEO cases involving similar situation, , and then employer asked if we could agree to come back to mediation to wrap everything up and so they could go over everything I laid out for them.
a letter from a lawyer stating "Dear Mrs. Smith, we highly encourage you to decline any resolution and to contact us after the investigation. At such a time we will represent you.
Present: I go to mediation in roughly 10 days. What should I expect to get out of this? I have no intentions of using a lawyer but if they try to severely low ball me I will pull it out and go that route. Is asking for 1yr pay (36k roughly) unreasonable? The employer has already made it clear they can't give me the job because it isn't open anymore and they are under a hiring freeze.
